Overview

As perhaps the world's most economically dynamic region, the Asia-Pacific is generating increasing attention from academic, business, and policymaking circles alike. The most ambitious attempt at regime creation in this region began in 1989 with the formation of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum (APEC).

It focuses on the likelihood of APEC becoming smoothly "nested" within the World Trade Organization and considers how subregional groupings in the Asia-Pacific might in turn become nested within APEC.
