The growing competition between Japan and China over regional primacy is changing the face of Asian regional governance — but not necessarily in predictable ways.
While observers have focused on Asia’s baffling array of regional institutions to discern which regional power is dominant, the real story in Asia is one of emerging regulatory networks.
These regional regulatory networks (unlike Asia’s largely ineffectual multilateral institutions) are issue-specific, problem-solving mechanisms that involve national, subnational and regional agencies, even private firms.
This process of regionalisation has its roots in the region’s increasing economic integration, both internally and globally. Asian firms, including state-owned companies, are now organised on a regional scale like never before, giving Asian governments a stake in how other states are governed domestically.
