Sample text

He points out that, in many situations, rational actors find it difficult to engage in cooperative arrangements, and thus the role of a hegemonic power is indispensable for the creation of international institutions. Yet the institutions which were created by a hegemonic state sometimes persist long after the decline of such a state. This is because their value for rational actors increases as the usefulness of their function is proven in practice (1984, 100–3). By the same token, it can be said that institutions which were created by ideational forces may incrementally attract self-interest maximizers.

The ASEAN countries initiated cooperative security in the early 1990s, motivated by a set of ideas associated with security cooperation. This means that the willingness to pursue an appropriate approach to security, in the light of these cooperative ideas, constituted a crucial component of the motives behind their initiative. Since then, through their pursuit of normative appropriateness, the elements of their self-interest associated with cooperation have been increasingly clear. The key element of this process has been the institutionalization of cooperative security relations between the ASEAN countries and other ASEAN Regional Forum (ARF) participants.

Finally, the development of East Asian regionalism should be mentioned. Today, besides the ARF, ASEAN has two other prominent channels, in which not only economic but also security issues may be addressed: the ASEAN Plus Three (APT), the first summit meeting of which was held in 1997, and the East Asia Summit (EAS), launched in 2005. The successful initiation of these two channels should be regarded as the fruit of earlier efforts to promote security cooperation centred on the ARF. The next step for ASEAN is to construct an ‘East Asian community’ within these frameworks.
