50 Years of ASEAN

The Association of Southeast Asian Nations is celebrating its 50th anniversary this August. At the outset, it was an organisation that everyone thought would fail, with the simple aim of promoting peace among the five founding nations. Over the past half century, it has grown to now include ten nations in this region and has a far more ambitious agenda. We tell the story of ASEAN through the personal accounts of some of the key figures involved with the association.
