Abstract

1

Leading realist thinkers in International Relations have characterized the change in the global order as one of a ‘power shift’. To the extent to which there has been a change from a unipolar order to a new multipolar order the realists are right. Yet the power shift argument underestimates other important dynamics. One of these relates to the growing importance of economic power over military capability. China’s initiative with respect to ‘One Belt, One Road’ recognizes that extending development opportunities to allies is more likely to enhance China’s influence over the architecture of the global order. Realists, however, would say that those countries that have not signed up to OBOR are calculating that they would rather maintain their strategic independence. Australia is an interested case in point: despite wanting China’s investment and the export opportunities that have opened up as China’s rises, Australia has so far wanted to stop short of aligning its economic and its strategic interests with Beijing. Is such a position sustainable in the long-run?? And more broadly, what other kinds of opportunities and constraints are likely to emerge in the Asia Pacific as we move from an American-led order to the new multipolarity?
