RSIS organised a book launch seminar on Negotiating Governance on Non-Traditional Security in Southeast Asia and Beyond, authored by Dr Mely Caballero-Anthony, Professor of International Relations and Head of the RSIS Centre for Non-Traditional Security (NTS) Studies. Around 50 people attended the seminar, held at NTU@One North on 6 March. Ambassador Ong Keng Yong, Executive Deputy Chairman of RSIS, congratulated Prof Caballero-Anthony for writing an excellent book that would further advance the concept of non-traditional security in both academic and policy studies. In delivering her summary of the book, Prof Caballero-Anthony argued that in a region that is often described as zealous in protecting state sovereignty, security governance of NTS issues does exist, bringing together state and non-state actors who can set the security agenda, provide resources, push for observance of certain norms, and seek collaborative policy approaches.
