Asia, particularly Southeast Asia, was identified in the Global Strategy as one of the focus regions where the EU would like to promote a resilient government and society through its normative power and developmental aids. However, although the EU has been trying to assert its values the most in Southeast Asia, the challenges for this Union, compared to other targeted regions like the MENA region or Eastern Neighborhood. Therefore, the article will examine challenges Brussels faces when engaging in various issues to promote resilience communities such as conflict resolution, climate change, democracy, rules of law and trade, and deliver a comparative analysis with other regions that the EU has also been enhancing this strategy. From that, implications for ASEAN in building its own resilience and multilateral cooperation will be analyzed. As the ASEAN-EU relationship is the crucial element of multilateral global governance, and the pioneer in resilience constructing, the notion “cooperation beyond aid” is not only fostering cooperation in promoting resilient communities in Southeast Asia but also lessons for this Associate to sustain the livelihoods of the population of its 10 member states.
