Book Description

5 Feb 2014 Asia Today
The eastward shift of political and economic power has been accompanied by increasing interest and participation in international peace support and stability missions by Asia-Pacific countries. From rising giants such as China and Indonesia to newer contributors such as Cambodia and the tiny city-state of Singapore, this book provides a first-ever cross-regional comparison of the capabilities of Asia-Pacific countries to contribute to peace support missions, with an eye to identifying strengths, weaknesses, emerging trends and policy implications.

Product Description


"As political and economic power pivots to the east, countries in the region will be expected to play a more prominent role in managing global peace & security. However, our knowledge of the capabilities, constrains and policies of these countries are limited. This book is thus both timely and relevant, as it offers a cross-regional comparison of the peace operations capabilities of selected countries in the Asia-Pacific region. I would highly recommend it to all scholars and policy makers interested in the trends and future prospects of peace and stability operations."- Cedric de Coning, Head, Peace Operations Research Group, Norwegian Institute of International Affairs (NUPI)
