In this chapter I intend to use the interplay between Malaysian and Australian academics to highlight the role of both countries in the evolving regional architecture of East Asia. In so doing, I discuss the importance, both conceptually and empirically, of liberal democracy to competing visions of regionalism and security in Asia. This helps illuminate what I call the ‘Australia-Malaysia’ nexus as a key part of the process of Asian regional integration and institution building.
