The book ”The European Union’s Security Relations with Asian Partners” – published by Palgrave Macmillan in the framework of the EAST project – analyses EU-Asia security relations in a systematic, substantive and comparative manner. The contributions assess similarities and differences between the EU and its Asian partners with respect to levels of threat perception, policy response and security cooperation in the context of historical, institutional and external factors – such as the influence of the United States. The book presents original empirical research organised in four parts: a number of contributions providing discussions of the global context in which EU-Asia security relations develop; a series of chapters covering the range of dimensions of EU-Asian security, including both traditional and non-military aspects of security; chapters addressing the specific issues touching on bilateral relations between the EU and its partners in the Asia-Pacific region; and a final part presenting the overall findings across the various contributions together with the future outlook for EU-Asia security relations.
The book was co-edited by Thomas Christiansen, Professor of Political Science at Luiss University (Rome) and part-time Professor at Maastricht University: Emil Kirchner, Jean Monnet Chair and Emeritus Professor at the University of Essex (UK); and See Seng Tan, President and CEO of International Students Inc. (ISI), and Professor of International Relations at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore.
