The seismic shift in the rise of Non-Traditional Security Threats

Written by: Fleming. Team

Britain's exit from the European Union is creating a domino effect not only on the economy scale or the immigration policy, but according to Thomas Withington, editor from Asian Military Review, “Brexit can be seen as potential risks to global peace, security and prosperity”. The question worth asking is, how will any shift or stir shape up the security of each nation especially in a world of dramatically expanding interactions through travel and trade?

Increasingly, conflict and instability are being generated in Asia Pacific by non-traditional or human security challenges. Increasing globalization and technological change are magnifying the potential security-related impact of many of these failures. The rise of Non-Traditional Security issues present new challenges for developing a regional security architecture — What traditional and non-traditional issues can be considered true security issues? Does the state remain the exclusive actor of international politics? Does individual security derive from national security? How can the military adapt to non-traditional security issues?

Such questions present serious obstacles to establishing a formal security architecture in Asia.
