Call for reviewers
  www.asianintegration.org extends this invitation for scholars and practitioners to review books for our newly launched website on East Asian economic integration. The economic integration of East Asia has advanced a lot over the past ten years. On the one hand, this concerns the de facto-integration of product markets and increasingly also of factor markets. On the other hand, it concerns also the expanding level of institutional interdependence. However, not all approaches to integration - bilateral agreements like the Korea-Singapore Free Trade Agreement, multilateral approaches like ASEAN plus Three (China, Japan, Korea) or supra-regional appendages like ASEM or APEC – can be reconciled with each other. The “Spaghetti-bowl effect” seems to lead to a system of trade disparity through agreements based on preferences. From a political point of view, facing hot spots like North Korea, integration becomes more and more important as well. The Seoul ASEM Institute for
 International Relations and Hanns Seidel Foundation would like to accompany the process of economic integration in East Asia with a discussion forum, open for scholars and practitioners likewise.
