This special issue of the Asia Pacific Business Review is the outcome of a research project undertaken at NEOMA Business School, commissioned and funded by the Economic Research Institute for ASEAN and East Asia (ERIA). Experts coming from various disciplines have investigated the progress that has been made in Southeast Asian regional integration under the aegis of ASEAN and contributed seven articles to this special issue.
The first three articles (Pelkmans; Degelsegger-Márquez and Remøe; Laplace, Lenoire and Roucolle) evaluate the depth of the economic integration process and reflect on the state of the ASEAN Economic Community, i.e. the extent to which ASEAN has become/is becoming an integrated market. The next two articles (Cuyvers; Jetschke) look into the bridges between the business and economic aspects of integration, on the one hand, and more political aspects, on the other.
Finally, the last two articles (Chen and De Lombaerde; Rüland) look at ASEAN in its international and global context.
