    Abstract

    Conventional state-centred security policies focus on the territorial defence of country borders against external armed attacks. However, for Asia, a continent which contains more than half the world's population, serious threats to the security of its citizens arise from disease, hunger, environmental contamination, poor governance, crime and localised violence. This publication contains a number of papers which go beyond traditional thinking to explore the range of security challenges facing the region, incorporating political, socio-economic and environmental dimensions and the linkages between them.
