Regional Issues and Mechanisms

image of Cross-Border Governance in Asia
Rapid globalization has led to increased flows of capital, services, ideas, information and people between countries. Problems that face one nation often have a rippling impact throughout the region and globally. This growing list of cross-border challenges cannot be resolved by isolated policy action at the national or sub-national level. It is essential to forge cross-border strategic alliances and develop consolidated approaches through regional platforms for dialogue and mechanisms for action. This book discusses regional governance mechanisms and institutional arrangements to respond to emerging cross-border issues and trends in Asia and the Pacific.

Cross-border governance in Asia: An introduction

Countries in Asia and the Pacific, the fastest growing region in the world, have become more interdependent as a result of globalization. Information, ideas, culture, people, resources, capital and crime all move across borders in larger numbers than ever before. As such, problems and challenges that face one nation often have a rippling impact throughout the region. Essential to this understanding is the issue of externalities, where costs and benefits may be assumed by countries and people who in any given situation have little or no control over the decisions which resulted in them. As a result, the international community has gained an improved understanding of the urgency and importance of addressing the challenges of development, cross-border issues, as well as other issues of shared concern.
