The RSIS Centre for Non-Traditional Security Studies has just released its Centre for Non-Traditional Security Studies Year In Review 2017. This annual publication is the centre’s reflections on the events of the past year and its staff’s contemplations on issues of non-traditional security in the region and beyond. The articles you will find within the pages of this publication resonate with the many research areas the centre focuses on but also extends beyond that. The articles examine the complexities and challenges of the many non-traditional security issues and highlight developments in this field of study. The centre’s Year In Review 2017 presents the ASEAN Convention against Trafficking in Persons as a means to fighting human trafficking in the region and looks closely at the trafficking of persons in the aftermath of natural disasters. It also presents the possible emergence of comprehensive humanitarianism in the region and emerging civil-military relations in humanitarian assistance and disaster response. We also highlight how our food production base can be secured through youth engagement and technological innovation and outline the importance of promoting a Nuclear Security Culture in ASEAN. In addition, there are discussions on the optimism of the Paris Climate Agreement, building resilience through disaster risk financing and sustaining our marine environment. The role of women in increasing food resilience during disasters and the need for new agendas for strengthening health systems in the region are also featured. Finally, as always, we showcase our centre’s activities for the year and the varied publications of our researchers in 2017.
