In Chapter 1, we presented three ‘prime dimensions’ to the new Asia-Pacific economic and security co-operation, namely: the tension between the ‘postshock’ forces of imperative co-operation and the counter-forces of complex diversity; the growing conflation between economic and security issues, or the economics-security nexus, in Asia-Pacific international relations; the relationship between the Asia-Pacific’s new economic and security bilateralism and regional-level forms of co-operation, integration and governance. In this chapter, we bring together the main findings and conclusions of preceding chapters and synthesise them within this ‘prime dimension’ analytical framework.
