Abstract

Contrary to the expectation that the end of the Cold War and the resultant tide of power diffusion would bring about more peaceful security environments, East Asia still suffers from power competition. The combination of resilient power balancing and strengthening power transition, coming from the rise of China, complicates East Asian countries’ strategic options. Multilateral institutions seemed to prosper during the last two-and-a-half decades under post-Cold War settings, but increasingly they are being reshaped to reflect great power politics. Great powers, especially the United States and China try to design the bases of multilateral institutions in their favor and interests. Unsolved problems stemming from historical modern transition in East Asia come to the fore in the form of nationalism, territorial disputes, and historical consciousness. On the other hand, global security environments are defined by emerging issues such as terrorism, cyber-security, piracy, and so on. (The rest omitted)
