The chapter examines the question of organisational legitimacy in relation to ASEAN, and the ways in which it has tried to address challenges to it. It argues that regional organisations in the global south need to legitimate themselves both internally towards their own membership, but also externally in particular towards powerful Western states and organisations. It contends that in the case of ASEAN the non-intervention norm, the support for a state-centric regional order, and a consensus-based process of decision making have been central to its internal legitimation; while some of its institutional reforms in recent years, like the ASEAN charter, have mainly been addressed at external audiences. The chapter highlights on the one hand the interdependency of internal and external legitimation efforts, but also the tensions between conflicting demands of distinct internal and external audiences.

Keywords:   ASEAN, external legitimacy, internal legitimacy, Myanmar, legitimation, non-intervention norm
