East Asia has been undergoing a new wave of political and economic transformations. The so-called ‘East Asian economic miracle’, which during previous several decades transformed Japan, Southeast Asia and China into a world economic powerhouse, is now facing serious challenges and a question arises what will be the future of East Asia developmental state?
Besides, the previously established view that a network of regional organizations with ASEAN at its core can successfully mitigate political and security antagonisms seems to be outdated today. Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement finalized in October 2016 only adds a new dividing line to the region between those countries who joined it and those who did not. In case of ASEAN this dividing line goes precisely in between member states of one integration grouping.
How does Russia fit into this ambivalent regional landscape trying to turn to East Asia in search of economic dynamism for its underdeveloped regions situated beyond Urals? The proposed paper is analyzing the possible role for Russia in East Asia in times of new political and economic transformations there.
