This article examines the ASEAN Charter's provisions that relate to the promotion of Responsibility to Protect (R2P) principles in Southeast Asia. It argues that the Charter essentially upholds the state-centered norms and traditions of ASEAN more than it provides for the transformation of the Association into a more people-centered regional organization. It also looks into the specific challenges and constraints faced by advocates of promoting human rights protection and R2P principles in the region, notwithstanding the limitations of the ASEAN Charter. Specifically, the article points to the importance of constituency-building at the national and regional levels, even as it also underscores the need to continue engaging in meaningful dialogue ASEAN bureaucrats on a range of people-centered security concerns.
