36th ASEAN Roundtable – Braving the Storms: ASEAN in Crisis Mode – Day 2
ASEAN STUDIES CENTRE
About the Webinar
Session III: Regional Political and Security Landscape
This session examines key events and developments that have shaken and reshaped the region’s political-security landscape in 2021. The February military coup d’etat in Myanmar and ASEAN’s ongoing struggle to nudge the country back to stability and democracy have posed serious challenges to ASEAN’s unity and centrality in its own neighbourhood. Is a reform of the ASEAN Way overdue and how should ASEAN reinvent itself in light of the Myanmar crisis? On the external relations front, 2021 heralded a sense of hope that ASEAN-US relations will turn a new chapter with the Biden administration after four years of Trump’s lacklustre engagement. Yet, as “America is back” and “the era of US engagement with China is over”, what would it mean for ASEAN’s strategic positioning among the two great powers going forward? What does US commitment to Indo-Pacific mean for ASEAN?
