Abstract

Most of the analysis trying to understand East Asian integration in recent years has focused primarily on the study of bilateral FTAs or the ASEAN process as the center of gravity for regionalism. However, after the Asian Financial Crisis in 1997-1998, the ASEAN Plus Three process involving Japan, South Korea and China was consolidated. This is just one example of how the focus of regionalism for the first time became East Asian wide, and the potential new center of gravity for regional institutionalization shifted to the northeast region. Institutionalization is a novel practice for policymakers in this region, particularly in the most advanced and developed economies of Northeast Asia. The focus of this paper is on South Korea, which is taking a very proactive role in regional affairs, especially when it comes to the building of regional institutions and the creation of regional governance.
