Abstract:

Multilateral security dialogues and interactions are fairly new in the Asia-Pacific. The principal embodiment at present is the 18-nation ASEAN Regional Forum ARF, established in 1993. This paper examines ARFs origins, what the forum is about at present mid-1995, where it may be plausibly headed over the next several years, and with what near and longer term implications for U.S. regional defense policy in the Asia-Pacific.
