Peter Van Ness, ‘Designing a Mechanism for Multilateral Security Cooperation in Northeast Asia’, IR Working Paper 2008/1, Canberra: Department of International Relations, Research School of Pacific and Asian Affairs, The Australian National University, March 2008.
The current Six Party Talks on the North Korean nuclear programs, if successful, could provide an opportunity to build new and unprecedented multilateral institutions to enhance strategic stability and security in Northeast Asia, historically one of the most volatile, geopolitical regions in the world. After working with colleagues on the linkage between historical reconciliation and cooperative security over the past several years, I attempt in this paper to pull together ideas about the possible component parts for a multilateral security institution in Northeast Asia.
