Title ASEAN Standby Force: Taking Southeast Asia Security to the Next Level.
Publication Date Mar 2013
Media Count 38p
Personal Author B. Tientongdee
Abstract The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) is often viewed as an irrelevant regional organization that fails to live up to its charter and has no institutional teeth. This is due to the ASEAN way of pursuing consensus among member states that lack mutual trust and coherence. An ASEAN Standby Force (ASF) would be a medium for ASEAN nations to improve their relationships while simultaneously increasing ASEAN's collective capability to address security affairs. The ASF would initially begin as an on-call emergency response force for natural disasters, monitoring in support of conflict prevention, maritime observation, humanitarian assistance, and peace support operations. Subsequently, a more robust ASF with standing organizations could be employed in other scenarios including conflict resolution. This paper analyzes the utility and prospects of an ASF and provides recommendations for its development.
