Charter of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations : กฎบัตรสมาคมแห่งประชาชาติเอเชียตะวันออกเฉียงใต้

(Photo From http://www.facebook.com/pages/Hello-ASEAN/392391907524370)


  • The ASEAN Charter serves as a firm foundation in achieving the ASEAN Community by providing legal status and institutional framework for ASEAN. It also codifies ASEAN norms, rules and values; sets clear targets for ASEAN; and presents accountability and compliance.

The ASEAN Charter entered into force on 15 December 2008. A gathering of the ASEAN Foreign Ministers was held at the ASEAN Secretariat in Jakarta to mark this very historic occasion for ASEAN.
With the entry into force of the ASEAN Charter, ASEAN will henceforth operate under a new legal framework and establish a number of new organs to boost its community-building process.
In effect, the ASEAN Charter has become a legally binding agreement among the 10 ASEAN Member States. It will also be registered with the Secretariat of the United Nations, pursuant to Article 102, Paragraph 1 of the Charter of the United Nations.

  • The importance of the ASEAN Charter can be seen in the following contexts:
    • New political commitment at the top level
    • New and enhanced commitments
    • New legal framework, legal personality
    • New ASEAN bodies
    • Two new openly-recruited DSGs
    • More ASEAN meetings
    • More roles of ASEAN Foreign Ministers
    • New and enhanced role of the Secretary-General of ASEAN
    • Other new initiatives and changes

(Ref. http://www.asean.org/asean/asean-charter/asean-charter)

  • กฎบัตรอาเซียน (ASEAN Charter) หรือธรรมนูญอาเซียน
    กฎบัตรอาเซียน เปรียบเสมือนรัฐธรรมนูญของอาเซียนที่จะทำให้อาเซียนมีสถานะเป็นนิติบุคคล เป็นการวางกรอบทางกฎหมายและโครงสร้างองค์กรให้กับอาเซียน โดยนอกจากจะประมวลสิ่งที่ถือเป็นค่านิยม หลักการ และแนวปฏิบัติในอดีตของอาเซียนมาประกอบกันเป็นข้อปฏิบัติอย่างเป็นทางการของประเทศสมาชิกแล้ว ยังมีการปรับปรุงแก้ไขและสร้างกลไกใหม่ขึ้น พร้อมกำหนดขอบเขตหน้าที่ความรับผิดชอบขององค์กรที่สำคัญในอาเชียนตลอดจนความสัมพันธ์ในการดำเนินงานขององค์กรเหล่านี้ ให้สอดคล้องกับความเปลี่ยนแปลงในโลกปัจจุบัน เพื่อเพิ่มประสิทธิภาพของอาเซียนให้สามารถดำเนินการบรรลุตามวัตถุประสงค์และเป้าหมายโดยเฉพาะอย่างยิ่งการขับเคลื่อนการรวมตัวของประชาคมอาเซียน ให้ได้ภายในปี พ.ศ.2558 ตามที่ผู้นำอาเซียนได้ตกลงกันไว้

"One Vision, One Identity, One Community"


(Photo From http://www.facebook.com/HelloAseanity)


The Association of Southeast Asian Nations, or ASEAN was established on 8 August 1967 in Bangkok, Thailand, with the signing of the ASEAN Declaration (Bangkok Declaration) by the Founding Fathers of ASEAN, namely Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore and Thailand. Brunei Darussalam then joined on 7 January 1984, Viet Nam on 28 July 1995, Lao PDR and Myanmar on 23 July 1997, and Cambodia on 30 April 1999, making up what is today the ten Member States of ASEAN. The ASEAN Community is comprised of three pillars, the ASEAN Political-Security Community, ASEAN Economic Community and ASEAN Socio-Cultural Community.

ASEAN Political - Security Community To build on what has been constructed over the years in the field of political and security cooperation, the ASEAN Leaders have agreed to establish the ASEAN Political-Security Community (APSC). The APSC shall aim to ensure that countries in the region live at peace with one another and with the world in a just, democratic and harmonious environment.
The members of the Community pledge to rely exclusively on peaceful processes in the settlement of intra-regional differences and regard their security as fundamentally linked to one another and bound by geographic location, common vision and objectives. It has the following components: political development; shaping and sharing of norms; conflict prevention; conflict resolution; post-conflict peace building; and implementing mechanisms.
The APSC Blueprint envisages ASEAN to be a rules-based Community of shared values and norms; a cohesive, peaceful, stable and resilient region with shared responsibility for comprehensive security; as well as a dynamic and outward-looking region in an increasingly integrated and interdependent world. The APSC Blueprint is guided by the ASEAN Charter and the principles and purposes contained therein. It provides a roadmap and timetable to establish the APSC by 2015. It also leaves room for flexibility to continue programmes/activities beyond 2015 in order to retain its significance and have an enduring quality.
Ref. http://www.asean.org/communities/asean-political-security-community

ASEAN Economic Community The ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) shall be the goal of regional economic integration by 2015. AEC envisages the following key characteristics: (a) a single market and production base, (b) a highly competitive economic region, © a region of equitable economic development, and (d) a region fully integrated into the global economy.
The AEC areas of cooperation include human resources development and capacity building; recognition of professional qualifications; closer consultation on macroeconomic and financial policies; trade financing measures; enhanced infrastructure and communications connectivity; development of electronic transactions through e-ASEAN; integrating industries across the region to promote regional sourcing; and enhancing private sector involvement for the building of the AEC. In short, the AEC will transform ASEAN into a region with free movement of goods, services, investment, skilled labour, and freer flow of capital.
ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) Blueprint The ASEAN Leaders adopted the ASEAN Economic Blueprint at the 13th ASEAN Summit on 20 November 2007 in Singapore to serve as a coherent master plan guiding the establishment of the ASEAN Economic Community 2015.
Ref. http://www.asean.org/communities/asean-economic-community




ASEAN Socio-Cultural Community
- ASEAN Socio - Cultural
The ASEAN Socio-Cultural Community aims to contribute to realising an ASEAN Community that is people-oriented and socially responsible with a view to achieving enduring solidarity and unity among the peoples and Member States of ASEAN. It seeks to forge a common identity and build a caring and sharing society which is inclusive and where the well-being, livelihood, and welfare of the peoples are enhanced.
ASCC is focused on nurturing the human, cultural and natural resources for sustained development in a harmonious and people-oriented ASEAN.
- ASEAN Socio-Cultural Community (ASCC) Blueprint
The ASCC Blueprint represents the human dimension of ASEAN cooperation and upholds ASEAN commitment to address the region's aspiration to lift the quality of life of its peoples. The goals of the ASCC are envisaged to be achieved by implementing concrete and productive actions that are people-centred and socially responsible. This set of cooperative activities has been developed based on the assumption that the three pillars of the ASEAN Community are interdependent and interrelated and that linkages are imperative to ensure complementarity and unity of purpose. The ASCC Blueprint was adopted by the ASEAN Leaders at the 14th ASEAN Summit on 1 March 2009 in Cha-am/Hua Hin, Thailand.
