NTS-Asia Consortium

The NTS-Asia Consortium was launched in January 2007 as a network of Non-Traditional Security research institutes and think tanks. RSIS NTS leads and coordinates this Consortium. The aims of the consortium are as follows:

  • To develop a platform for networking and intellectual exchange between regional NTS scholars and analysts
  • To build long-term and sustainable regional capacity for research on NTS issues
  • To mainstream and advance the field of non-traditional security studies in Asia
  • To collate and manage a regional database of NTS publications and other resources

The NTS-Asia Consortium is a networking platform that enables intellectual exchange in the field of non-traditional security studies. Annual meetings, conferences and roundtables allow for regional discussions on research outputs and the latest developments in the field. A constant virtual presence is created through the NTS-Asia website, which serves as a one-stop resource centre for all NTS-related matters in the region. The consortium also enables capacity-building of young scholars and analysts; provides opportunities for mentorship and expertise sharing; and facilitates new research partnerships.

The NTS-Asia Consortium was initiated through a Ford Foundation grant which enabled network members to meet annually to share recent research findings and draw up policy recommendations on Asian NTS issues. The Consortium currently has 20 Asian research institutes and think-tanks as members.
