RSIS Monograph No. 25
South and Southeast Asia have undergone varied experiences with regard to the civil-military balance. The democratising trend has been very visible over time. But how exactly have post-military regimes fared in the region? This volume looks at the demilitarisation experience in five countries: Bangladesh, Pakistan, Thailand, Indonesia and the Philippines. The study demonstrates that the demilitarisation of governance is not just an event but a complex and often long-drawn-out process. It offers valuable lessons on the prospects for the embedding of democracy not only for the region examined but for civil-military relations generally, and indeed the authoritarian-democratic balance everywhere.
