S Rajaratnam Endowment – ASEAN Community Forum


ASEAN Foundation

The S Rajaratnam Endowment – ASEAN Community Forum series aimed to discuss ways to make the ASEAN Community Blueprints 2025 more relevant and responsive to improve lives of ASEAN citizens. In its two-year implementation, the forum engaged 132 participants from 122 civil society organisations (CSOs) across 10 ASEAN Member States to implement work plans on a broad range of development issues. Representatives from the ASEAN Secretariat attending the forums also spoke on elements of the ASEAN blueprints. The forum series succeeded in promoting regional friendship and collaboration among CSOs and assisted in narrowing the gaps between ASEAN’s institutional and communal identity.
