This article is aimed at analyzing the premises, perils, and promises of ASEAN integration. Beyond examining the regionâ€™s situation, this article will also draw lessons from the European Union and various incipient Latin American integration projects. Specifically, this article will address the following questions: (a) How does the ASEANâ€™s founding myth affect the ASEAN integration projectâ€™s general direction? (b) What is wrong with ASEANâ€™s current neoliberal framework? (c) What country will be the likely hegemon of the ASEAN economic and socio-cultural community? (d) Is a solidarity-based, people-centered, grassroots-driven, and non-neoliberal model for ASEAN integration possible and sustainable? (e) What lessons can be drawn from the European and Latin American integration schemes?
