Asia: A Geopolitical Reconfiguration
Politique étrangère, 77, 2, summer 2012
The Asian “supercomplex” has taken shape: this is evident within the crossmembership model to Asian intergovernmental organizations and through the appearance of political counterweights to China, particularly in India. The United States’ engagements in East and South Asia are also part of this supercomplex. The hardening of Beijing since 2008 has helped maintain US influence in Asia, despite Washington’s decline on the international stage.
