Abstract

The perceptions of the European Community (EC) in the members of the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) have undergone changes in the course of time. In the formative years of ASEAN and in the 1970s, the EC tended to be seen as an example worth emulating. But in the 1980s disillusionment with Europe's growth potential raised doubts about the gains to be had from economic integration. The pendulum now seems to be swinging in the other direction once more. The differences and similarities in the initial conditions between the European Community and ASEAN are examined in this article, before the events leading to the Treaty of Rome are sketched. A brief description of the organization of the EC is followed by a summary of the lessons that can be drawn from the European experience for the present ASEAN situation.
