Future Security Cooperation

Capacity Building and Security Institutionalization

Security cooperation in Asia Pacific region has been developing quite remarkably at different levels. The ASEAN centered and multilayered security architecture is regarded as the foundation of security cooperation in the wider Asia Pacific region. However, limited capacity of some member states of ASEAN to adapt, socialize, and integrate themselves into such dynamic institutionalization of security cooperation creates certain constraints and challenges.

It is therefore necessary for the regional countries to narrow the security capacity gap within the region in order to encourage more equal and responsible participation of all the member states of ASEAN. It should develop regional programs and projects to strengthen the security related institutions and human resource development on security issues.

Capacity building process itself can be developed into the establishment of a common security norm and identity within the region.
