This book provides an analysis of non-traditional security (NTS) crises and cooperation between the European Union and Southeast Asia.

Using case studies from both Southeast Asia and Western Europe between 2009 and 2016, the book examines the haze, marine life protection, migration and terrorism. It offers an understanding of the EU as a collective actor within the ASEAN-EU and ASEM inter-regional dialogue formats and affiliated programmes. The author shows the relevance of the EU as a security actor and as a normative actor. She demonstrates the value of inter-regionalism as a foreign and security tool of the EU in Southeast Asia. Arguing that the EU is an important actor in the Asia Pacific region, the book offers new insights into the institutional dynamics of both regional organisations and their interaction in times of crisis and rising nationalism in Europe and Southeast Asia. It also underlines the importance of regional organisations in the management of contemporary transboundary and NTS challenges.

Enhancing topical debates and offering a timely assessment of crisis-induced regionalism and inter-regionalism in world affairs, this book will be of interest to scholars studying International Relations, International Security, Southeast Asian Studies, European Studies and Public Policy.
