Room 918, School of Public and International Affairs, 420 West 118th St.
Dr. Marty Natalegawa, former Foreign Minister of the Republic of Indonesia, is the author of the recently published book, Does ASEAN Matter? A View From Within. In his talk, Dr. Natalegewa will address the questions the book seeks to answer: How can ASEAN build upon its past contributions to the peace, security and prosperity of Southeast Asia, to the wider East Asia, the Asia-Pacific and the Indo-Pacific regions? More fundamentally and a sine qua non, how can ASEAN continue to ensure that peace, security and prosperity prevail in Southeast Asia? And, equally central, how can ASEAN become more relevant to the peoples of ASEAN, such that its contributions can be genuinely felt in making better the lives of its citizens? The talk will be moderated by NYSEAN co-founder Dr. Ann Marie Murphy.
