Overview

Southeast Asia is intimately interconnected with terrorism, including the events of 9/11. Operatives and evidence have been found in various locations in the region, and some areas contain cultural and religious elements, local insurgents and domestic terrorists prone to hosting international terrorism. In this series of 12 essays, contributors look at the terrorism situation at the trans-national and regional levels in Southeast Asia, including militant extremism of the home-grown and imported varieties, fragile political and market structure, and power struggles between national governance and the US. They also examine what they call Southeast Asia's "ideological and physical enabling environment," including elements of radical religiosity, organized crime, light arms proliferation, border security, and media.
