Lu, Zhiqian. (2022). A study on Lancang-Mekong cooperation mechanism based on a comparative perspective. (Master’s independent study). Bangkok: Siam University.


The Lancang-Mekong Cooperation (LMC) mechanism is a cooperation joint mechanism between countries in the Lancang-Mekong River region. The cooperation among countries in the Lancang-Mekong river region covers a wide range of area, participation has increased, and is progressing smoothly. Local governments that act as sub-governmental actors in the international community play an important role in the international cooperation. However, through literature studies, it was found that there was a serious mechanism overlap in the Lancang-Mekong Region. Most studies on the Lancang-Mekong mechanism put forward countermeasures for internal and external relations between countries, and show specific projects of the mechanism from a macro perspective without a systematic and complete investigation and understanding of the behavior of local governments. Therefore, this paper analyzed the LMC, US-Mekong, Japan-Mekong and other cooperation mechanisms along with the international behaviors of Jiangsu province regarding participation in ASEAN from a comparative perspective, compares the participants and the differences in empowennent and influence from outside the region. It found that the development of the LMC mechanism was restricted by historical and practical factors. Finally, it proposed to weaken the influence of other mechanisms on persoimel training, cultural and people-to-people exchanges, and cooperation between social organizations and local governments, in order to improve the LMC mechanism, promote common development of LMC countries, and further benefit the people in the region.
