Security perspectives of the Malay Archipelago

security linkages in the second front in the war on terrorism

Research output: Book/ReportBook


The Malay Archipelago – namely Singapore, Brunei, Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines – has recently risen in prominence as the 'second front' in the war on terrorism. This study argues that the Malay Archipelago constitutes a distinct sub-regional security complex within Southeast Asia due to the existence of patterns of amity and enmity, as well as transnational terrorism linkages.
