Looking for Balance
Stanford University Press

This chapter discusses the potential application of multilateralism in making hegemon's power more predictable and legitimate in the eyes of others. It suggests that while East Asia appears to have made limited progress in fostering multilateral coordination and promoting norms of mutual adjustment, it has made more important progress in constructing regionalism based on burgeoning financial and economic interactions among the countries in this region and in the Asia Pacific. The chapter also contends that these developments do not necessarily banish power politics but contribute to taming its practice.

Keywords:   multilateralism, East Asia, multilateral coordination, mutual adjustment, regionalism, economic interaction, Asia Pacific, power politics
