There have been many comparisons between the Association of Southeast Nations (ASEAN), created on August 22, 1967 by the Treaty of Bangkok, and the European construction. When we think of the European community in the early 1970s or the EU of today, we think directly about the concept of integration.

ASEAN is clearly opposed to the prospect of integration because, according to its founders, "an institutional framework does not create solidarity by magic." The founding states of ASEAN have never considered any transfer or even a simple duplication of sovereignty: they will not compromise on a recently acquired independence. Regionalism is seen not as an end in itself but as a tool available to the states.

ASEAN is a tool that manages both nationalism and interdependencies. The Association does not fit well into any box unlike the implementation on other continents. It displays no ambition but allows precise methods that lead it closer to the networks of traditional diplomatic instruments to settle the tensions.
