"To some extent, ASEAN insulates countries from regime change because of the members’ commitment to non-interference. The region as a whole embraces this idea of non-interference, which sometimes doesn’t live up to expectations. But in reality, it’s a huge obstacle, because they’ve committed to not interfering with each other. If another ASEAN member would cross the line in Cambodia, it would challenge the very principles which underpin ASEAN."
