What is it about?
ASEAN has achieved deeper regional market integration to lay a socio-economic foundation for the development of a Southeast Asian regional community, yet inter-state trust is by no means assured within the region. By looking beyond the veneer of diplomacy and prevailing political circumstances, this book examines the legal nature and form of ASEAN's authority to address diverse regional security issues. The book takes an interdisciplinary analysis to assess the normative role played by ASEAN in the process of Southeast Asian norm development.
Why is it important?
This book is one of the first to take a look at ASEAN from a legal security perspective and considers matters ranging from Nuclear Security, Counter-Terrorism, Maritime Security, Cyber Security, Human Trafficking and People Smuggling, and Food Security
