ASEAN as a Multi-Religious Organization: Where to go?

JOSEPH CORDEVILLA NEGRILLO

Master of ASEAN Studies

_________

Nationalism and Nation-Building in Southeast Asia: A Comparative Discussion

Joseph C. Negrillo

Master of ASEAN Studies

 

                      “Nationalism – idea not ideology, taking many forms – has not only been a means to create a state: it has also been a means to sustain one, evoked in a struggle with other states or as a means to consolidate a regime or both.”

- Nicholas Tarling, 2004

Beijing and Hanoi must sit down and talk

The recent incidents involving China and Vietnam must not give false hopes for these two Asian nations to sit down and give each other a chance of holding a dialogue concerning territorial claims. Recent developments would instead push both parties for a peaceful co-existence in the South China Sea. Beijing and Hanoi must heed to the rule of law for the sake of maintaining peace and stability in the Asia-Pacific region.

China shouldn't skip the World Economic Forum in Manila

There are reports that Beijing will skip the World Economic Forum (WEF) on East Asia to be held 21 – 23 May 2014 in Metro Manila, Philippines. These are no surprises but China should reconsider the Forum on its broadest sense. After all, China is a key player in East Asia and the fastest growing economy in the continent.

Why Asia needs its own version of NATO and soon

It is easy to ignore a seemingly frivolous diplomatic incident in Asia at a time when the world’s attention is firmly invested in the Middle East, which saw the latest edition of the long-running Israeli-Palestinian saga playing out in Gaza last month. Add to that the much-vaunted economic rise of Asia in the past decade, and the Asia-Pacific region barely comes to mind as a potential flashpoint or a threat to international peace and security.

What are the consequences of government overreaction to terrorist threats? Tom Parker, author of "Avoiding the Terrorist Trap," discusses privacy, surveillance, and more in the context of counterterrorism.

How does American civil society demand consideration of moral and ethical concerns in the decisions both to go to war and how the war will be prosecuted?

Suleimani Is Dead, but Diplomacy Shouldn’t Be

Carnegie Council fellow and Pacific Delegate Philip Caruso advocates for the value of diplomacy in the aftermath of the U.S. killing Iran's general Qassem Suleimani. "Iran cannot win a war against the United States, nor can the United States afford to fight one," he argues.
