DESCRIPTION

With the countries of Southeast Asia increasingly challenged by a plethora of nontraditional security issues—climate change, food and water security, infectious diseases, and migration key among them—a number of important questions have emerged: What national and regional efforts are being made to address these issues? Why have some approaches proven more successful than others? How do competing private and public interests affect the ability of states to protect their citizens?

Addressing these questions, Amy Freedman and Ann Marie Murphy explore the factors that continue to impede cooperation in combating transnational security threats across the region.
