Civil-military relations during pandemic

20 April 2022
by Izzah Ibrahim & Regina Wan Ahmad The first cases of Covid-19 in Malaysia were detected on 25 January 2020, traced to three Chinese nationals travelling from Singapore. As part of the national response to mitigate the communal spread and pressure to the country’s healthcare system, the movement-control order (MCO) was implemented on 18 March…

Leadership 101 must be on full display during pandemic

07 June 2021
Leaders seeking public compliance with SOP should inspire confidence, stop making U-turns.  THE Covid-19 pandemic has pushed the world into a prolonged state of crisis and like it or not, it will continue to do so. New variants, vaccine shortages and the struggling economy have been on rotation of the list of difficulties, but the…

There’s No Hard Reset for Conflict

20 February 2021
More than a year’s worth of disruption and reactive measures against the COVID-19 pandemic has brought the world to a stop. Thus unsurprisingly, when discourse surrounding vaccines and more robust recovery measures gained ground, so did the hopes for a rebound in the near future and a return to some semblance of the ‘old’ normal.…

Geopolitical Considerations for ASEAN-ROK Relations

16 November 2020
ASEAN and South Korea should strive towards fostering cooperation in the strategic aspect of the New Southern Policy. To reach that objective, however, ASEAN needs to address some of its internal issues. BY IZZAH KHAIRINA IBRAHIM The rising authoritarianism and pressures from China and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK, hereafter North Korea) are…

New Chances for South Korea’s New Southern Policy

15 October 2020
Considering the current ambiguous geopolitical and geo-economic situation, Southeast Asia has found itself at the centre of attention in shaping post-pandemic agendas and priorities in the Asia-Pacific.  The region’s states, including Malaysia, is no stranger to such a role especially when concerning matters of public health. Through both individual capacities and the Association of Southeast…

Health diplomacy way to managing international affairs

08 August 2020
WHILE pandemic-induced times call for pandemic-tailored measures, the immediate effects of the Covid-19 virus have shown how countries dependent on the globalised world have suffered from these disruptions. It has also extended to affecting commitments in international and regional organisations working to ensure stability or some degree of normalcy to ensure that these vital networks…

A Healthy Frame of Mind for National Security

16 April 2020
Incorporating security elements in the fight against COVID-19 is essential, but Malaysia’s national response should not be constricted to that paradigm alone. While its grand strategy should still be driven chiefly by healthcare considerations, there are some internal and external impediments – borne out of a security mindset – that could complicate achieving this ideal.…

Compliance: Too difficult of a pill to swallow?

09 April 2020
Compliance: Too difficult of a pill to swallow? In past health security crises, the military and police have played a role to mitigate and solve issues. COVID-19 is unprecedented in that it restricts movement across the nation. With shifting goalposts and ambiguous definitions for full compliance, would society be able to achieve the 100 percent…

Making Heads or Tails on Arms: Technology and Defence Spending

16 January 2020
The undetermined future of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF) remains a concerning indicator for the state of global nuclear disarmament and arms control. While understandably less headline-worthy as potential nuclear-induced doomsday or promises of developing advanced warheads, not much has been said about their conventional counterparts. Specifically, not much has been said about the…

Overhauling foreign policy to get our priorities right

01 October 2019
NEITHER failure, overachievement nor decisions made through Malaysia’s foreign policy have attracted numerous mixed reactions from both at home and abroad. While no one expected a perfect report card, some of the approaches we’ve taken to express our national interests and values do leave a lot to be desired. The international environment is evolving in…

Why we should not follow by example

04 May 2019
IN determining the desirable traits of a “good” leader, oftentimes what you get is a far cry from the idealised figures one would anticipate. Emphasising this dissonance is the growing examples of strongman politics that challenge our understanding and expectations of leaders and decision-making processes both at home and abroad. And these behaviours and policies…
