About this book

This wide-ranging book analyses EU-Asia security relations in a systematic, substantive and comparative manner. The contributions assess similarities and differences between the EU and its Asian partners with respect to levels of threat perception, policy response and security cooperation in the context of historical, institutional and external factors – such as the influence of the United States. The book presents original empirical research organised in four parts: a number of contributions providing discussions of the global context in which EU-Asia security relations develop; a series of chapters covering the range of dimensions of EU-Asian security, including both traditional and non-military aspects of security; chapters addressing the specific issues touching on bilateral relations between the EU and its partners in the Asia-Pacific region; and a final part presenting the overall findings across the various contributions together with the future outlook for EU-Asia security relations.

Reviews

 

“An insightful, timely and must-read publication on an often-overlooked but increasingly important aspect of EU-Asia relations. I see it becoming indispensable reading for all those interested in EU-Asia relations including EU, Asian and US policymakers as they seek to hammer out a new, more constructive and mature script for their complex future geopolitical interactions.”

-Shada Islam is Founder of New Horizons Project, a global analysis company and the former EU correspondent of the Hong Kong-based Far Eastern Economic Review newsweekly.

“This most timely and comprehensive analysis of the EU’s multidimensional and multifaceted security relations with Asia provides up-to-date analysis that helps to better understand and explain the EU’s actual and potential role as a security actor on the regional, interregional and global levels of international relations. It should become essential reading for scholars, students and practitioners with an interest in European, Asian and global security affairs.”

-Prof. Dr. Sebastian Bersick, Jean Monnet Chair, Ruhr University Bochum, Germany

“This book provides the most comprehensive academic analysis to date of the European Union’s emerging security relations with Asian states, with detailed chapters on the EU’s security interactions with all the main Asian states and ASEAN, as well as the full spectrum of security issues. … a must-read for anyone seeking to understand the dilemmas facing the EU as it debates how to respond to China’s rising power and an emerging US-China Cold War.”

-Prof. Andrew Cottey, Department of Government and Politics, University College Cork
