Expertise: Pacific security and defence, Southeast Asia, particularly Indonesia


1 Minute with Dr Huxley:

As a specialist in Southeast Asian security based in Singapore, I am closely interested in the parallels between my region and the Gulf, in terms particularly of the problems of small-state security, the difficulties of constructing a viable regional security architecture, questions regarding the economic and security interests and roles of extra-regional powers, and the dangers inherent in weapons proliferation. Another contemporary parallel between the two regions involves security challenges from non-state actors, particularly in terms of maritime piracy. In sum, there seems to be clear potential for making policy-relevant comparisons between the security experiences of the Gulf and Southeast Asia.
