    Abstract: 論文提要內容:

    The purpose of this thesis is to assess the efficacy of the ASEAN Regional Forum in maintaining peace and security in the Asia-Pacific Region. Founded 1993, during the twenty-sixth ASEAN Ministerial Meeting in Singapore, the ASEAN Regional Forum’s (ARF) first inaugural meeting took place in Bangkok on July 1994. The ARF is the first regionally inclusive multilateral forum for official consultations on peace and security issues. However the ARF is not a collective defense organization, nor is it based on collective security. Rather the ARF is a unique alternative security arrangement based on multilateralism. It aims to foster constructive dialogue and consultation on political and security issues of common interest and concern, and make significant contributions to efforts towards confidence-building and preventive diplomacy in the Asia-Pacific region.

    However, because of the forums lack of institutionalization and consensus based approach to decision making, it has attracted the label of “talk-shop” and there continues to be arguments, for and against, the effectiveness of the forum in achieving maintain peace and security in the region. Therefore an assessment of the ARF will be carried out by looking at the forums achievements, limitations and it’s handling of the South China Sea Conflict. The SCS is discussed since it represents the region’s most major and recent flash point and includes members of the ARF.
