International institutions increasingly affect each other’s development, design, content and effectiveness. The rising density of institutions gives also rise to nested and overlapping relations between international agreements. East Asia is a highly interesting region regarding institutional interplay, especially since regional institutions or fora are steadily and at times spontaneously evolving in different issue areas such as trade, finance and security. Moreover, emergent regional institutions in this region often overlap with their respective global counterparts. How does institutional interplay within networks of nested and overlapping regimes in specific issueareas influence the establishment of new institutions and the contents, functions and consequences of existing ones? In order to answer this question the model of a "regime complex” is applied to the various, nested and often overlapping interactions between global institutions and their regional counterparts in East Asia.
