Transnational Security in Asia - PICT922

Transnational security challenges pose major problems for Australia and many Asian states, as well as for the traditional conceptual foundations of international security studies based on the primacy and sovereignty of the state. Human migration, drug trafficking, environmental change, and organised crime, for example, contribute to the internal instability of some regional countries. In some instances, resource scarcity could even lead to more traditional interstate conflict. However, new and innovative analytical concepts are required to have a clear appreciation of the specific nature of individual transnational problems and their responses.
