Who: Ellen L. Frost, Visiting fellow, Peterson Institute for International Economics; Adjunct research fellow, National Defense University

Event: A central theme in Asia's New Regionalism is the link between integration driven by governments for political and security reasons and integration fueled by ethnic, cultural, and economic ties. As the political drive to establish closer ties among Asian governments continues to gain momentum, there has been much debate about the realities of Asian regionalism. Does the community-building activity in fact signal the birth of "Asia Major"? What are the obstacles to integration? And is integration a positive trend for the region—and for external actors? Ellen Frost joins the Council to explore these sometimes mismatched dynamics and highlight implications for policies both in the region and globally.
