Overview

Since the end of the Cold War, European and East Asian states have established a series of distinct regional and transboundary structures and agreements. The EU has grown into a remarkable model of peaceful cooperation, and countries in Southeast and Northeast Asia are gradually developing the ASEAN+3 process into an East Asian community. Through bilateral, multilateral, and especially interregional relationships, both Europe and East Asia are now actively engaging with other regions and the global community. This book examines the opportunity to sustain peace and prosperity through dynamic, multilevel governance.

César de Prado presents four case studies of political, advisory, economic, and social multilevel governance centered in Europe and East Asia. He examines government actors advancing traditional agendas through formal regional institutions and flexible intergovernmental processes; Track-2 processes that link governments with economic and civil society actors; dynamic economic cooperation through the information and telecommunications sectors; and broader social advancement through regionally and globally educated human resources.

The convergence of European and East Asian political, economic, and social agendas could spur the United States and other powers to better engage in global multilevel governance, and reinvigorate multilateral organizations such as the United Nations.

    Illuminating for our times!

    Really one gets a map of a possible world order. It is very dense but clear. The tables are outstanding. Highly recommended.
