About this book

Asian security institutions have struggled to adapt to the so-called 'non-traditional' security issues that characterise the strategic landscape of the 21st century. The resulting gaps in governance have increasingly been filled by think tanks, which have arguably begun to change the way that Asian security is governed.

Reviews

“This book provides a very useful portrayal of the space where regional security governance is defined, and of the discursive strategies used by think tanks to increase their influence. … This book certainly contributes to highlighting the inherent potential of discourse-based work on security regionalism in Asia. Therefore, it should be read by anyone interested in the evolution of regional security governance in Asia and in the role of non-state actors in this process.” (Peter Worthing, Pacific Affairs, Vol. 90 (2), June, 2017)

“Zimmerman’s book is therefore an excellent point of reference not only for experts and political scientists interested in improving their knowledge about think tanks, but also for those who wish to enhance their ability to understand how think tank networks and ideational processes are able to affect decision-making environments and political agendas at different levels of governance in the vast and multilayered arrangement within the field of non-traditional security in Asia.” (Silvia Menegazzi, Journal of Contemporary Asia, Vol. 47 (2), September, 2016)
