Globalization and China’s galloping economy have caused radically different economic growth rates, resulting in constant fluctuations in the balance of power among the nations of Northeast Asia. This publication advances the notion of regional institutionalism as a counterweight to the principle of sovereignty. It argues that cooperation through regional institution-building is the best way to deal with the growing intertwinement of global issues and developments and the needs and interests at the regional and national levels. A unified regional voice could also answer the demand for supra-territorial policy responses to such issues as trade, finance, the environment, human rights, and human security.
