Overview

In recent years, Asia has embraced a new multilateralism. From the Six-Party Talks on the Korean Peninsula to the East Asia Summit, governments now seek collaborative approaches that address the security and economic challenges of the region. Yet the underlying rivalry that has long complicated relations between international powers in Asia continues to play out as states compete for a regional order that reflects diverse values and interests. The fifteen contributors to this volume, leading experts on the region, assess whether Asia's emerging institutional architecture will move it toward shared concepts of security, prosperity, and justice-or whether Asia's future may in fact resemble its past.
