Evelyn Goh, the new Shedden Professor of Strategic Policy Studies at the Australian National University examines the changing regional order in contemporary East Asia. Goh argues that the region is defined by the parallel strategic resurgence of both the US and China. These countries have had to negotiate and seek legitimacy for their roles and influence in the region, with with non-great power states playing a key role in driving this process. Rather than balancing or bandwagoning, Goh argues the East Asia region is defined by a negotiated attempt to draw both China and the US into a new regional order.
