Magazine Description

In this issue

In the cover package of Global Asia’s Summer 2011 edition, we explored the relationship between Asia’s many decades of peace and its much-heralded economic prosperity, and asked, will this last? In this edition of the journal, we revisit the topic of East Asia’s so-called Long Peace, but this time from a much deeper and broader perspective, based on a five-year research project carried out at Uppsala University in Sweden and funded by the Swedish Riksbankens Jubileumsfond. Over the years from 1839 to 1979, East Asia experienced some of the world’s bloodiest wars. Even during the Cold War, East Asia suffered 80 percent of all global battle deaths. But then, that long period of conflict was followed by a period of peace that has lasted now for three-and-a-half decades. Given that remarkable hiatus from armed conflict among nations, scholars have pondered the factors that have underpinned this peace and whether there are lessons to be learned for other parts of the world.
