Can Central Asia be integrated as asean?
This article examines the role of the one of the most influential
contemporary regional political and economic organization of the Association
of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) as an example for further integration of Central Asian countries: Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan,
and Uzbekistan. The role of security organizations in the context of
integration also has been used. Based on the findings of this paper, Asian
countries have sufficient resources and motivation to prepare for sustainable
continental convergence by establishing a meaningful relationship between
the experiences of different regionalism in Asia.
