About this book

This book takes up a wide variety of human security challenges beyond the dimension of human conflict, and looks at both natural and human disasters that the East Asian region faces or is attempting to resolve. While discussing various human security issues, the case studies offer practical lessons to address serious human security challenges in the framework of the ASEAN Plus Three and beyond. Against the backdrop of multifaceted globalization and parochial reactions thereto, this book is a powerful contribution to universal human security.

Reviews

“The concept of human security makes invaluable contributions to the world’s efforts to advance sustainable development and peace. With its emphasis on people, human security embodies the core promise of the 2030 Agenda: to leave no one behind.” (António Guterres, Secretary-General of the United Nations)

“A fascinating collection of case studies—ranging from recent earthquakes in China and Japan to the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, land grabs in Cambodia, human trafficking in Indonesia, and more—brings unique insights to the way that several core themes of international security and development play out: East Asian regionalism, sovereignty, the role of trust, the nexus of development and human security, and the importance of local knowledge. It provides a useful resource that brings together exploration of human security as theory and its application to analyzing how contemporary threats to human well-being are being addressed by individuals, states and the international community.” (Sakiko Fukuda-Parr, Graduate Program in International Affairs, The New School, USA)

“At a time when the global community is faced with increasingly complex challenges to human security, this book on Human Security and Cross-Border Cooperation in East Asia could not have been more timely. Rich in conceptual and empirical analyses of human security threats from, among others, natural disasters, infectious diseases, forced migration and internal conflicts, the book persuasively argues that in a highly interconnected and integrated East Asian region, cross-border cooperation is far more critical now than ever before. This book is a must read for policy and academic communities and for anyone interested in human security in Asia and beyond.” (Mely Caballero-Anthony, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore)
