Essay 3

Over the last 5 weeks, we have examined a variety of key regional issues: the characteristics of the region’s political economy, regional integration processes, the role played by institutions in the region, the emergence of nationalist forces, the persistence of traditional security concerns (especially maritime disputes) and the growing threats posed by non-traditional challenges.
For the purpose of this assignment, please choose 1 of the following scenarios:

Imagine that you are the leader of a fictitious country in East Asia. A neighboring country is advancing claims over a territory under your administration. What are the steps that you can take to address and defuse this situation? Is there anything you can learn from similar territorial disputes happening in the region?
Imagine that you are the leader of a fictitious country in East Asia and that you are exploring various ways to achieve economic growth and development. What models of development adopted by your neighbors should you look to? What are the pros and cons of these models when applied to your country?
Imagine that you are the leader of a fictitious country in East Asia and that you are interested in launching a new cooperative initiative to address the challenges posed by climate change. What ideas, principles or characteristics of the existing regional institutional architecture do you find most suited for your initiative? What, instead, would undermine the likelihood of successful cooperation? What regional actors would you want as members of your initiative? Please, justify your answer to each question.

The table below gives you an idea of the political, social and economic characteristics of the fictitious country. You may want to take a look at it as a reference when addressing 1 of the above scenarios.
