Middle Powers in Asia Pacific Multilateralism: A Differential Framework
Dr Sarah Teo Assistant Professor and Deputy Coordinator of MSc (International Relations) Programme
Dr Sarah Teo
Middle powers and multilateralism are often regarded as concepts that go well together, but what makes middle powers behave the way they do in multilateral platforms? Drawing from insights offered by differentiation theory and power politics, this book puts forth a new framework to explain middle power behaviour in multilateralism. This differentiation-based theoretical framework is applied to the behaviour of Australia, Indonesia and South Korea in the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) and the East Asia Summit.
