In investigating the origins and evolution of Asia’s new institutional architecture in trade, finance, and security, this book focuses on three sets of distinct but related issues. The first concerns the evolution of a new institutional equilibrium in trade and finance. The second examines the changing paths toward security cooperation. The final set of issues addresses the strategic interaction between trade, financial, and security arrangements. Each set of questions will be investigated along the three sub-regional lines with attention to linkages among Northeast, Southeast, and South Asia through interregional arrangements.
