Disruption is the new change

Disruption is the New Change

09 January 2018
Article by Elina Noor which appeared in New Straits Times, 9 January 2018. THE start of the year is usually a time for forecasts and predictions. However, if the world’s events last year were anything to go by, the safest bet would probably be to expect more disruption in the months ahead. Disruption, of course,…

Resilience and innovations for a diverse Asean

30 November 2017
As the new chair of Asean, Singapore has announced that its thematic priorities for the region in the coming year will be resilience and innovation.

Resilience and innovation in the region will be,…
Threat Assessment : Building A Nation

Threat Assessment : Building A Nation

14 September 2017
ONE of the questions we are regularly asked by foreign visitors to the Institute of Strategic and International Studies (ISIS) Malaysia seeking to understand Malaysia’s threat assessment and the regional strategic landscape is what the country considers its top-most defence and security challenge.

At 50, ASEAN Cannot Afford a Mid-life Crisis

At 50, ASEAN Cannot Afford a Mid-life Crisis

16 January 2017
This year, Asean turns 50. If Asean were a person, it would be due for a mid-life crisis. From inception to expansion, Asean has evolved considerably. Over the years, the Asean way of soft, flexible diplomacy, a preference for principles and non-intervention in neighbouring states’ affairs slowly made way for increasing institutionalisation, legalism and a…

ASEAN not so divided on the South China Sea

17 August 2016
Clouded by controversy even before it began, the recently concluded 49th ASEAN Foreign Ministers’ Meeting (AMM) in Vientiane, Laos was conspicuous for two things: who was and was not present; and, perhaps more importantly, what was and was not discussed. While Malaysia’s foreign minister, Anifah Aman — who had been expected at the AMM until…

Malaysia: Recalibrating its South China Sea Policy?

15 January 2016
For a little over a year, between 2013 and the first quarter of 2014, Malaysia’s policy surrounding the South China Sea dispute hit a shroud of confusion. Taken aback by Chinese naval patrols around James Shoal (Beting Serupai in Malay), only 43 nautical miles off the coast of Sarawak State, the government responded with a…
