Beyond 2015: ASEAN-Japan Strategic Partnership for Democracy, Peace, and Prosperity in Southeast Asia
Edited by Rizal Sukma and Yoshihide Soeya

The year 2013 marks the 40th anniversary of the launch of the informal dialogue relations between ASEAN and Japan. The relationship between the two remains strong, but a number of developments in the region over the past decade have made it necessary to reexamine and redefine the strategic value of ASEAN-Japan cooperation. This report, based on the first year of a study that draws on the combined insights of dozens of the region's brightest thinkers, offers recommendations for such cooperation with a particular eye toward how it can contribute to further integration among ASEAN countries, particularly in the economic, political and security, and socio-cultural realms.
