A Rules-Based Order in the Asia-Pacific


In this article, Nasu & Tan acknowledged that there are different versions of a rules-based order within and beyond existing framework of international law. In the Asia Pacific, the development of rules-based order depends on the extent to which states in the region can agree on what the rules are and find a common ground to negotiate between China and the US through the shifting balance of power politics.
