CSIS Lecture Series on Regional Dynamics with H.E. Dr Rizal Sukma, Indonesian Ambassador to the United Kingdom, Ireland and the International Maritime Organization, on “Indonesia, ASEAN, and the Indo-Pacific: Strategic Necessities or Norm-Setting Exercise?”

By adopting the ASEAN Outlook on the Indo-Pacific, Indonesia with other nine ASEAN member states seeks to transform strategic competition between great powers from a challenge to an opportunity. Now, questions remain whether such outlook might be effective in guiding ASEAN to finally embark on devising a collective action mechanism to respond to geopolitical competition, or it will remain only as convening power whose capabilities rest primarily on symbolic repertoire. More importantly for Indonesia, the question is how Indonesia could play a natural leadership role in the region, which includes ensuring ASEAN centrality and its relevance to face the future of regional dynamics in the Indo-Pacific era.
