This chapter looks at the normative underpinning of effective multilateralism, especially in its application to sovereignty, noninterference and the use of force global norms that are central to global and regional order. In essence, it seeks to shed light on the problem of global norm diffusion in international relations, with particular reference to the implementation of the Responsibility to Protect (RtoP) in East Asia, focusing on China and Japan.
