The main argument of this chapter is that the position and posture of the developing countries of the Asia‐Pacific region towards the emerging world order are marked by a great deal of complexity and ambivalence. This ambivalence or state of apparent schizophrenia can be discerned from an analysis of some of the principal economic, security, and political developments in the region in recent years, especially in the wake of changes brought about by the end of the cold war. The different sections of the chapter provide a closer analysis of these developments in four key areas: economic regionalization, problems of security and stability, human rights and democratic governance, and regional institution building.

Keywords:   Asia Pacific, cold war, democratization, developing countries, economic growth, economic regionalization, human rights, institution building, political change, security, stability, world order
