THE recently held 38th and 39th Asean summits and those related signalled a new path in the convoluted spectrum of regional affairs, in the context of post pandemic recovery and security.

Topping the agenda are the two main issues of the Myanmar debacle and the hotly contested trilateral security pact of the United Kingdom, United States and Australia (Aukus), which was recently formed.

Asean was formed in the midst of worsening regional security during the Cold War, with the primary aim of preventing a domino effect of the expansion of communism that would engulf the entire region.

Since its first inception, Asean has been juggling to redefine and realign its purpose, relevance and critical role in adapting to the changing geopolitical and economic landscape.

Socio-economic and humanistic progress have been taking the centre stage in enhancing intra-region economic connectedness and inclusivity.

In this journey of economic cohesion and revitalisation, member states have been navigating through a treacherous path of securing national interests and survival, while balancing obligations to the Asean principles, all while pandering to the influence and adjustments of external rival states.

It is an open secret that – while member states continue to rely heavily on the benefits of the group to project common regional interests and goals – in individual capacity, conflicting arguments and policy directions, particularly in the security landscape, and alignment to competing powers contributed further to the worsening security climate.

The Aukus alliance has further exposed the gravity of the situation where, on one side, common projected reactions and stands are opposing in tone and express great concerns on Aukus’s immediate and protracted negative impact.

Whereas, on the other, defence and security policymakers are welcoming the prospect of a stabilising counterbalance assurance to the threat from China.

It remains ironic or counter productive for Asean to remain trapped in the chessboard of great powers – which is imploding right in the centre of the region – with its hands tied by the external pressures and the cards held by those powers, given its historical nature in warding off risks and threats of conflict.

The zone of peace, freedom and neutrality (Zopfan), the centrality of Asean, and its uniqueness have brought decades of relative peace and stability.

However, the nature of threats with the return of traditional high intensity conflicts and their convergence with non-conventional warfare have put the archaic model of strategic patience and non-binding centrality at serious risk of subjugation and degradation.

Lacking the inner resilience and capacity as a region, the region remains at the forefront of the next global flashpoint, either triggered by the evolving security dilemma within, or as the victim of the domino effect of neighbouring hotspots, the Taiwan Strait in particular.
