Languages of publication
In 2017, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations celebrated its 50th anniversary. One of the most urgent challenges the organization has to face up is the enlargement of its structures by a group of new members, including East Timor, which has been aspiring to become part of ASEAN community since 2011. The aim of this article is to present the broad scope of bilateral relations between the organization and East Timor with special attention paid to the latter’s path of accession, and an assessment of East Timor’s candidature’s strengths and weaknesses. Another key issue is an attempt to answer a question about the implications of East Timor’s possible participation in future ASEAN.
W roku 2017 państwa tworzące Stowarzyszenie Narodów Azji Południowo-Wschodniej obchodziły jubileusz 50-lecia powołania do życia wspólnoty. Jednym z bieżących i jednocześnie przyszłych wyzwań stojących przed tą organizacją jest poszerzenie struktur o kolejnych członków, w tym o starający się oficjalnie o przystąpienie do forum współpracy od 2011 r. Timor Wschodni. Celem poniższego artykułu jest przedstawienie relacji panujących pomiędzy wspólnotą ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) a państwem Timor Wschodni z uwzględnieniem jego dotychczasowej ścieżki akcesyjnej oraz ocena mocnych i słabych stron zgłoszonej kandydatury wraz z odpowiedzią na pytanie o implikacje ewentualnego przyjęcia do struktur stowarzyszenia.
