The article discusses the role of China in the rise of Asia and the implication of the rise for global governance. It compares what may emerge in an Asian-dominated world with the governance trends seen in the European Union (EU). According to the author, how Asia, particularly China, might influence international relations is not clear, and multiple possibilities exist. Possible obstacles to the vision of Eastphalia are also discussed.
