ASEAN Community 2015: Integration for Whom?


April 2015 | 16 pages

IBON International’s policy paper critiques the ASEAN Integration and explains how it can worsen inequalities between and among ASEAN nations because of the possible increase of corporate power in the region. This paper also proposes alternative approaches for transforming the ASEAN into a region that is truly people-centered: by abandoning the market-led growth strategy and focusing more on people’s concerns such as food sovereignty, climate change, and respect for human and collective rights.
