Review Section to-constrain considerations. Finally, this work also raises important issues about the evolution and dimensions of institutions in general. Based on the history and future of the ARF as an institution, we may well begin to learn when specific dimensions might or might not help to overcome differences (regarding conceptions and interests) among members. In all, Yuzawa has opened the door on these important fronts for Japan amid a new generation of security studies, and perhaps his future work will allow us to reflect on these lingering issues more cogently. In the meantime, with respect to the task he sets up for this study from the start, he must be commended for a thorough accounting of Japan's efforts, as well as associated outcomes, in building a security institution in the volatile East Asian region.
