Sample text

It addresses the question as to how historical readings could be preserved in order to function as normative drivers of integration rather than disintegration. The chapter by Edward Moxon-Browne (2015) examines the role of institutions in regional integration, undertaking a comparative reflection. The chapter starts from the assumption that ‘institutions matter’ in the creation, maintenance and future prospects of regional integration projects. It is argued that governments create regional integration institutions to enhance the predictability of interactions with other governments, and of the outcomes emanating from those interactions.

The chapter contends that this is largely due to the fact that ASEAN’s priorities, norms and context have superseded an EU agenda of promoting its regional integration experience. The following chapter, by Walter Kennes (2015), examines the evolving development partnership between the EU and ASEAN. ASEAN, as one of the most successful integration initiatives among developing nations, and the EU, as the most comprehensive arrangement among industrial countries, are widely considered natural partners.

For example, Europe’s defining characteristic is its apparent relative homogeneity, in terms of religion, race and historical experiences, when observed from afar. The EU’s structure and membership are characterised by democratic systems and the rule of law; a relatively high level of economic and social development; a common economic ideology; and, finally, in stark contrast with East Asia, by supranational institutions and a pooling of sovereignty among its 28 member states. In contradistinction to this architecture, East Asian regional bodies are heterogeneous, in terms of race, ethnicity, religion and the different historical experiences, including those of colonialism.
