Abstract

One of the key questions that will define whether the 21st century will be an “Asian Century” is the region’s capability to develop a regional order that accommodates the competitive dynamics between its major powers, thus allowing regional stabilization and the projection of East Asia’s influence at a global scale.In this article, we identify two possibilities for the future regional order. On the one hand, it might evolve into a classic balance of power system. On the other hand, it might evolve into a regionalization process, which tries to integrate the region’s powers into a scheme of cooperation.At the centre of this regional dialectic is ASEAN, which tries to affirm itself as the space of gathering of these two tendencies and to promote a synthesis between them, creating a regional order that integrates regional competitive dynamics by intensifying the cooperative relations between East Asia’s States.
