Religion, Values, Identity and the ASEAN Integration

Manila, Philippines                                              May 8-9, 2014


in cooperation with

De La Salle University

University of Santo Tomas

The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), was established in 1967, and ten member states, namely: Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Viet Nam. In 2000, the Initiative for ASEAN Integration Work Plan was formulated for 2002-2008, and a second Work Plan was formulated for 2009-2015, all with the intention of achieving an ASEAN Community. The second Work Plan embodies three blueprints in the areas of economic integration, political security integration, and socio-cultural integration. With 2015 just in the horizon, the 6th Southeast Asian Biannual Conference problematizes the impact of the ASEAN Integration on religions, values and identities of the people in the ten member states, hence the theme ?Religion, Values, Identity and the ASEAN Integration.? This theme is intended to encompass such topics as: local philosophies, systems of values and the ASEAN integration; impact of the ASEAN integration on religion, values and identity; bridging diversities in the region; new possibilities in education and human capital; integration and the question on language; and other similar issues.
