Parliaments and Political Change in Asia
Institute of Southeast Asian Studies
Institute of Southeast Asian Studies, 2005 - Political Science - 324 pages
In the Southeast Asian context where the incidence and violence of piracy have been growing and where maritime terrorism is a threat with potentially horrific consequences, there is an urgent need to come up with innovative ways to counter maritime violence. Beyond providing a solid foundation for the analysis of maritime piracy in Southeast Asia, the book also gives considerable attention to the challenges of regional cooperation. It is indeed regional cooperation that can make a major impact on piracy if more effective collaboration can be negotiated. The immediate practical challenge that emerges clearly from the contributions to this book is the need to continue to support initiatives to build trust and cooperation at the regional level in Southeast Asia.
