Southeast Asia is not a mere geographical space with a passive role in the international arena. Instead, the region has continued to be an active agent to engage in the international political discourse that covers the political, economic, social, and cultural dynamics, as well as, security issues. The image of Southeast Asia as an actor that is capable of becoming an agent, is reflected in the political decision taken by the leaders of Southeast Asian countries to define and to present themselves as one single community, which is the ASEAN Community.
