Asia's Regional Architecture

Andrew Yeo

Stanford University Press

This chapter presents a new theoretical framework for understanding the development of Asia’s regional architecture. Drawing on historical institutionalism, the chapter discusses how endogenous processes of change, as well as mechanisms of continuity, have produced a layering of bilateral, trilateral, mini-lateral, and multilateral institutions in Asia. The chapter also discusses the limitations of theories of rational institutional design, and the role ideas and institutions play in shaping actors’ choices.

Keywords:   Historical institutionalism, rational choice, regionalism, Asia, bilateral alliances, endogenous change, continuity, institutional design
