The new 21st century has altered the political

constellation amongst actor of international relations. Yet, one

thing is certain that today’s world cannot be separated from

diplomacy. Cultural diplomacy offers an alternative solution to

address the complexity of international relations by employing

culture as the foundation of soft power. Unlike the

conventional diplomacy which depends on formal and official

state actors, the modern concept of diplomacy allows room for

participation from non-state actors. This paper tries to apply

the modern concept of cultural diplomacy to a regional

organization. It argued that cultural diplomacy will be a

suitable tool for ASEAN in invigorating the passion towards a

regional integration. Further descriptive analysis on the type of

cultural diplomacy that takes place in ASEAN will be given

using the three schools of thought by focusing on the role of

state and non-state actors
