ASEAN Economic Community Law and Policy
Last Updated Date:   10 June 2022

5 Credits,  Semester 2

Course Description:
ASEAN leaders agreed to create a single market - the ASEAN Economic Community - by 2015 and aim for deeper integration by 2025. Yet, due to sovereignty concerns, ASEAN leaders did not create a single supranational authority to regulate this market. Issues further arise from politics, social values and technology and from the Covid-19 pandemic and its trade and economic impacts. This course examines how ASEAN member states and institutions are filling in the vacuum through formal and informal means. Students will understand how regional policymaking affects domestic laws and policies within ASEAN.
