Overview

This Adelphi examines defence procurement in Asia against a backdrop of the region’s fragmented security infrastructure. The overlapping alliances, multilateral bodies and regional dialogues are ill-equipped to respond to the changing balance of power, since there is no unified forum through which aspiring powers can be managed.

The book breaks its analysis down into regions, identifying the strategic postures of competing powers in Northeast, Southeast and South Asia.
