Description

Focusing on the nexus between global, regional, and national dynamics in Southeast Asia, Joern Dosch explores the profound political changes that have occurred in recent years both within the region and in its international relations. Dosch first examines the realm of foreign policy, with an emphasis on the link between democratization and the conduct of foreign affairs. Subsequent chapters consider the origins of insurgencies and terrorism, responses to national and international security threats, and the increasing importance of subregional cooperation. The efforts of the international donor community to promote good governance are highlighted, as is ASEAN's inability to respond to new international challenges. The book concludes with an assessment of the region's current geostrategic position and the new contours of its relations with the US and the countries of Europe and East Asia.show more

Review quote

"This is a fine volume, distinguished by its intricate knowledge of Southeast Asian politics, careful investigation of a range of often understudied security and economic issues, and grounding in wider studies of regionalism and global trends in political economy." - Christopher Hughes, University of Warwick"show more
