about

Traditional notions of security are premised on the primacy of state security. In relation to energy security, traditional policy thinking has focused on ensuring supply without much emphasis on socioeconomic and environmental impacts. Non-traditional security (NTS) scholars argue that threats to human security have become increasingly prominent since the end of the Cold War, and that it is thus critical to adopt a holistic and multidisciplinary approach in addressing rising energy needs. This volume represents the perspectives of scholars from across Asia, looking at diverse aspects of energy security through a non-traditional security lens. The issues covered include environmental and socioeconomic impacts, the role of the market, the role of civil society, energy sustainability and policy trends in the ASEAN region.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:

"This book is helpful in initiating a critical discussion about energy security in Asia, and deserves to be of interest to a variety of audiences, including academics, students and NGO activists whose interest is any combination of energy security, Asian studies and non-traditional security." (Kai Chen, Journal of Contemporary Asia, May, 2014)
