Data Indeks Persepsi Korupsi yang dirilis oleh Transparency International pada tahun 2013 menunjukkan bahwa lima negara anggota ASEAN berada di bawah peringkat 110 dari semua negara yang masuk dalam riset TI. Artinya, perlu upaya pemberantasan korupsi yang lebih komprehensif dan multisektoral dari negara-negara ASEAN. read more read more

But is it? This leads us to ask: What is Asean?
