Asia in Focus Speaker Series:
Dr. Alice Ba,
University of Delaware, presents, "Combating Terrorism and Piracy at Sea: The Politics of Regime Building in the Malacca Strait."

 

Thursday, October, 23rd, 1:00-2:00pm, Ekstrom Library, Room W104.

The Malacca Strait is one of the busiest straits in the world; however, its geography also makes it among those most vulnerable to piracy and terrorist attacks.  The imperatives of cooperation would seem obvious, yet it was not until the mid-2000s that we see the emergence of more regularized cooperation aimed specifically at improving the security and safety of the Malacca Strait.  The emergence of this nascent security regime raises a number of questions about the politics and conditions of security regime building in Southeast Asia.  In particular, what conditions made the emergence of such cooperation possible in the mid-2000s and not earlier?  What kinds of actors prove instrumental and how?
