Peacebuilding and Security Sector Governance in Asia

Abstract

Covering Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, Nepal, Sri Lanka and Timor-Leste, these case studies explore the relevance of security sector governance and reform for political transition, democratisation and peace-building in Asia. Examining the prospects for security sector governance within each case through the lens of political reconciliation, government legitimacy, civil-military relations and democratic accountability, the authors study issues of political will, local/national ownership and the influence of external actors in domestic reform contexts.
