A study is presented of aspects of Cambodian foreign policy to discern factors impinging on Cambodian participation in regional cooperation efforts in Southeast Asia--particularly in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations ASEAN. Cambodias reliance on instability in the region as an aid in retaining her national survical and neutral image, and the circumstances under which Cambodia would be likely to participate in ASEAN are examined. Such circumstances relate especially to Cambodias neighbors--Thailand and South Vietnam--and the outcome of the Vietnam war as a determining factor in Cambodias regional role. The study concludes with an estimate in Cambodias relationship to the region, US interests in Cambodia, and the relevance of ASEAN to US interests.
