The key aim of the project is to provide an ongoing annual assessment of democratisation in ASEAN member states, which will contribute to the democratisation process itself in the longer term.

The focus of this project is to develop democracy promoting indicators and/or democracy eroding indicators. Such a set of indicators could form the basis of a systematic and sound analytical foundation for monitoring the development and practice of democracy in the region.

This project is part of the ASEAN People's Assembly (APA) initiatives, supported by ASEAN-ISIS.

Convenors: CSIS, Jakarta and ISDS, Philippines.

Researchers: Hadi Soesastro, Christine Susanna Tjhin, Herman Kraft (ISDS), and Aries Arugay (ISDS).
