Title: East asia community : reality or mirage?
Authors: Song, Guoxuan.
Keywords: DRNTU::Humanities
Issue Date: 2005
Abstract: This paper is trying to answer the question why EAS failed to serve as the starting point of building an EAC. It starts with the superficial explanation of this failure, arguing that the divisiveness and debate at EAS led directly to the abortion of EAC. Then it continues to analyze what is deep rooted beneath the surface. To fully tackle the question, I am trying to provide an eclectic explanation which combines material, institutional as well as ideational factors stressed in realist, liberal and constructivist explanations. East Asia is a region "ripe for rivalry", with balance-of-power games and security dilemma dynamics prevailing.
