About This Book

This book examines maritime security challenges in Southeast Asia and the responses that they provoke. Maritime security is an issue that has, over the last 20 years, taken on a much greater importance, due to the Law of the Sea Convention, which has resulted in the 200-nautical-mile Exclusive Economic Zones (EEZs). As well as traditional security threats to maritime security, there has also emerged a range of non-traditional threats, such as piracy and international terrorism, which spill over into the maritime domain. Events such as September 11 and the designation of Southeast Asia as a 'second front' in the war against terrorism, have resulted in the growing realisation that multilateral security cooperation is required in order to manage the security of the seas. Expert contributors, including many from the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies at Singapore's Nanyang Technological University, identify the nature of Southeast Asia's maritime security problem. They also critically evaluate the various responses by countries and organisations within and without the region. With bibliography and index.
