Repenser les identités régionales par les élargissements : une comparaison UE/ASEAN

Abstract : In the 1990s and the 2000s, the enlargement of both the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and the EU have meant considerable changes within these regional organisations. In both cases, the new member states were considered to be states who were lagging behind in terms of development, often described as ‘weak states’. However, far from being marginalised, new member states were paradoxically able to reinforce their sovereignty. In this context, this article argues that new member states were able to limit the hegemony exerted by old member states by insisting on shared regional values and identities. Thereby, they transformed their initial ‘weakness’ into ‘strength’.
