A new policy brief from Stable Seas measures and maps various maritime security issues across Southeast Asia. Building off the recent release of the expanded Maritime Security Index, the brief looks at the maritime security challenges that face the region and what can be done to address them. The document dives deep into each of the nine maritime security issue areas covered in the Index for all ASEAN littoral states.
The brief pays particular attention to the role of the ASEAN. ASEAN is well-placed to play a leading role in facilitating maritime cooperation in the region. The brief details the potential of ASEAN to facilitate increased collaboration on maritime security issues and suggests a few areas of potential policy prioritization for consideration as the region develops collaborative solutions to its maritime security challenges.
