Politics and Security in Southeast Asia: Terrorists, Gangsters and the State aims to inform you of the relationship between nations in the area and how certain security factors and criminal issues are shaping the region. The online unit, from Open Universities Australia and Murdoch University, will provide you with the definition of security and look at the stance of the government towards certain threats.
As well as the region's stance towards crime, the unit will provide you with insights into the types of crime occurring in Southeast Asia, from terrorism, piracy and drug smuggling to other global threats. It will look at the conflicts that have occurred in the area and the danger of certain areas such as Myanmar and Indonesia, as well as conflicts between governance and gangs. The unit will analyse political and economic corruption as well as human security in the area.
By covering crimes across the region, the unit gives a broad overview of the history of Southeast Asia and not just one state. You will discover how issues such as piracy and organised crime affect the whole region and the way that security has evolved as a result of these crimes.
