This book is a probing reassessment of security prospects for the Asia-Pacific region centred on an analysis of three key notions: hegemonic power, human security and multilateralism.

The post-September 11 world is steadily moving towards multipolarity as the hegemon's authority declines. The UN is at a pivotal moment in its history and middle powers like Japan and Australia will no doubt help to shape its future. Furthermore, China's star is rising and the region has to contend with all the ramifications of this complex reality.

The book defines human security as a concept that offers the international community a broader philosophical and political purpose and gives substance to the emerging regional and global multilateralism. It poses perhaps the two most intriguing and critical questions of the moment: can civil society and epistemic communities, operating across cultural and civil boundaries, play a more influential role in defining the goals and processes of regional cooperation in Asia Pacific? and can states, multilateral organisations and civil society develop a more effective partnership in pursuit of these goals?

This book is a probing reassessment of security prospects for the Asia-Pacific region centred on an analysis of three key notions: hegemonic power, human security and multilateralism.

The post-September 11 world is steadily moving towards multipolarity as the hegemon's authority declines. The UN is at a pivotal moment in its history and middle powers like Japan and Australia will no doubt help to shape its future. Furthermore, China's star is rising and the region has to contend with all the ramifications of this complex reality.

The book defines human security as a concept that offers the international community a broader philosophical and political purpose and gives substance to the emerging regional and global multilateralism. It poses perhaps the two most intriguing and critical questions of the moment: can civil society and epistemic communities, operating across cultural and civil boundaries, play a more influential role in defining the goals and processes of regional cooperation in Asia Pacific? and can states, multilateral organisations and civil society develop a more effective partnership in pursuit of these goals?

This book brings together distinguished scholars and experts on public policy, social ethics, defence, human security and sustainability to consider the future of the Asia-Pacific region and appropriate responses by both states and civil society. It will appeal to scholars and researchers of international relations, politics and Asian studies as well as policymakers in the region.
