Asia is challenged by a number of non-traditional security issues including the food-energy-water nexus, climate change, transnational crime, terrorism, disaster relief and economic performance.
This volume categorizes and clarifies some key emerging issues in the area and looks at their interconnectedness and implications. The essays explore how non-traditional issues can manifest as security challenges, and the role of the state and military in dealing with these.
Issue-based and area-specific, they rely on facts and interpretation of data, avoiding alarmist predictions.
A nuanced and analytical approach into an uncharted area, this book will be essential for policymakers, researchers and students of security and strategic studies, foreign policy, sociology and political economy, as well as the general readers.
