Human Security and China´s Rise as Triggers for Regional and Intra-Regional Cooperation in and between Southeast and Northeast Asia
Since the end of the Cold War, regional cooperation has increased both in Southeast Asia and between Southeast and Northeast Asia, with ASEAN playing a leadership role. Today, regional collaboration is a reaction to two major external challenges: China´s rise and the broad variety of new non-traditional threats. However, the degree of cooperation is still much deeper in the realm of economic security than in military, societal or environmental security. As the analysis of the fragmented notion of human security in East Asia demonstrates, a main reason for this is that many governments promote regime over individual human security.
