Contents Notes
Rethinking Energy Security: A Non-Traditional View of Human Security -- The Role of Indonesia's Civil Society in Energy Security -- The Non-Traditional Security (NTS) Perspective on Energy Security Policies in Singapore -- India's Energy Security: Directions and Challenges -- China: Energy-Saving and Emissions Reduction. Traditional notions of security are premised on the primacy of state security. In relation to energy security, traditional policy thinking has focused on ensuring supply without much emphasis on socioeconomic and environmental impacts. Non-traditional security (NTS) scholars argue that threats to human security have become increasingly prominent since the end of the Cold War, and that it is thus critical to adopt a holistic and multidisciplinary approach in addressing rising energy needs. This volume represents the perspectives of scholars from across Asia, looking at diverse aspects of energy security through a non-traditional security lens. The issues covered include environmental and socioeconomic impacts, the role of the market, the role of civil society, energy sustainability and policy trends in the ASEAN region.
