Abstract
There are many permanent regional dispute settlement mechanisms (DSM) in other regions. But in the Asia-Pacific region, there has not be a permanent DSM to resolve their regional disputes. We consider that the Asia-Pacific region is uniquely positioned to take global leadership in providing non-adjudicated solutions to some of the most pressing global and regional issues. We argue that the region has the capacity to offer an alternative, less rights-and-power-based approach to peaceful co-existence. We thus propose to create a new, permanent DSM of the Asia-Pacific Regional Mediation Organization (ARMO) for the mediated resolution of State-to-State (Economy-to-Economy) disputes in the Asia-Pacific region.
