Abstract : Asia is changing politically, economically, socially, and militarily as we approach the 21st Century. This study explores the successful development and accomplishments of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and the ASEAN Regional Forum (ARF) over the last thirty years. It argues that ASEAN values and principles of Resilience, Consensus, Dialogue and Consultation, Constructive Engagement and Non-interference, Gradualism, and Community and Common/Shared Goals undergird the ASEAN vision of a new multilateral security framework for the Pacific. Because of its credible history, ASEAN can make a significant difference in bringing about peace and stability in the Pacific region at this critical moment in world history.
