About the Book


Security is increasingly becoming a complex concept acquiring new nuances with debates over its scope. There are arguments as to whether the current approache(s) to the study of security is(are) any longer suitable for dealing with the changing nature of contemporary security. At another level, the debate over security is if there can be geographical and cultural connotations to security and security studies in opposition to the state/power centric Western approach. Further there are criticisms related to increasing securitization of issues which, it is argued, may lead to politics of exception.


The volume is an interdisciplinary effort designed to respond to the changing nuances of security. It intends to address the changing notions and critically examine the foregoing uncertainties and the resulting unpredictability in the international politics of Asia. It builds on quest in the region for new analytical and policy frameworks, as well as for a new architecture for regional security.
