During the Cold War, the U.S. built a series of alliances with Asian nations to erect a bulwark against the spread of communism and provide security to the region. Despite pressure to end bilateral alliances in the post-Cold War world, they persist to Dr. Andrew Yeothis day, even as new multilateral institutions have sprung up around them. In this book launch event, Dr. Andrew Yeo discussed whether Asia’s evolving regional architecture, defined by a complex array of overlapping bilateral and multilateral institutions, enhances cooperation or exacerbates existing rivalries in the region. He addressed this question in light of the Trump administration's Asia strategy and Chinese President Xi Jinping’s regional ambitions.
