This paper argues that the formation of regional integration frameworks can be best understood as a dominant state’s attempt to create a preferred regional framework in which it can exercise exclusive influence.

 

In this context, it is important to observe not only which countries are included in a regional framework, but also which countries are excluded from it. This paper analyzes the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) from two angles: (i) control of membership and (ii) control of agenda.
