Asiatiske sikkerhetsstudier

Kinas og Indias vekst fører til en maktforskyvning mot Asia.

Om noen tiår kan vi stå overfor et internasjonalt maktsystem der spesielt Kina vil tre frem som en ny supermakt med kapasitet til å benytte militærmakt også utenfor regionen. Senter for asiatiske sikkerhetsstudier analyserer denne utviklingen og mulige konsekvenser for Norge og Europa.

Senter for asiatiske sikkerhetsstudier bygger nettverk med institusjoner og forskere i Asia, Europa og USA. En viktig samarbeidspartner er Robert S. Ross, professor i statsvitenskap ved Boston College og professor II ved John King Fairbank Center for Chinese Studies ved Harvard University og ved Forsvarets høgskole.

In South Asia and the Great Powers: International Relations and Regional Security, edited by Stein Rynning. I.B. Tauris<p>​Where the implications of war and peace are open to question, the possibility of change depends more on politics than economics. This book asks whether the region's great powers can overcome opposing interests and commit to political restraint. The concept of regional security is based on great power support for regional order. However, there are many pitfalls to consider: notably, the politics of contested nationalisms; the Asia-Pacific rivalry of China and the US; and India's inclinations to function - or be seen - as a benevolent hegemon for the region. </p><p>Yet there are signs of renewed determination to move the region in new directions. While China's Silk Road projects are long-term regional investments that hinge on regional stability, the US is attempting to fashion new partnerships and India strives to reconcile regional differences to promote a peaceful environment.</p><p>This book, as it sets out the emerging agendas of the great powers and local powers, makes a significant contribution to a better understanding of the international relations and diplomatic politics of South Asia.<br></p><p><a href="http://www.ibtauris.com/en/Books/Society%20%20social%20sciences/Politics%20%20government/International%20relations/Geopolitics/South%20Asia%20and%20the%20Great%20Powers%20International%20Relations%20and%20Regional%20Security?menuitem=%7bF66D6451-D7DF-403F-A234-82FAE9B3F795%7d">Read more about the book on the I.T.

Hsiung, Christopher Weidacher. 2016. "China and Arctic energy: drivers and limitations." Polar Journal, online 26 OctoberHsiung, Christopher Weidacher. 2016. "China and Arctic energy: drivers and limitations." Polar Journal, online 26 October<p>​​​China's growing demand for oil and gas is forcing the country to look abroad to secure new sources of imports. The Arctic region could function as such a source, and Chinese oil companies have already started to engage in oil and gas exploration and production there. </p><p>The literature has tended to take this as evidence that China will become an increasingly active and important player in Arctic oil and gas resource developments. This article, however, argues that China's Arctic oil and gas interests are in fact modest. Domestic views on Chinese involvement in Arctic gas and resource development have been mixed and cautious, indicating a wait-and-see approach. There have been few concrete Chinese investments, further indicating limited interest. Only the onshore Yamal LNG project in the Russian Arctic can be characterised as substantial Chinese participation. </p><p>The challenges and high costs of oil and gas production in the Arctic, China's increased import options, the current economic slowdown in China and security developments in the Arctic region all impact China's motivations and possibilities for participation in the development of Arctic energy resources.</p><a href="https://www.fni.no/publications/china-and-arctic-energy-drivers-and-limitations-article1143-290.html" target="_blank"><p>The article is part of a project run by ​​The Fridtjof Nansen Institute.

The argument is that China's leverage in Myanmar far outweighs India's, and that the Tatmadaw nevertheless prevents either country's manipulation of Myanmar. In contrast this article argues that the idea of a “Sino-Indian Great Game” still marks the Indian debate, thinking and policy on Myanmar. China's continued rise will remain a main driver behind India's Myanmar policy, and Myanmar will remain geostrategic relevant to India.​</span><br style="box-sizing:content-box;color:#333333;font-family:proximanova, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:16px;line-height:26px;background-color:#ffffff;"><br style="box-sizing:content-box;color:#333333;font-family:proximanova, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:16px;line-height:26px;background-color:#ffffff;"><span style="color:#333333;font-family:proximanova, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:16px;line-height:26px;background-color:#ffffff;">The article describes the historical legacy of India's relationship with Myanmar, discusses the role of China in Indian Myanmar policies, and examines the effects of Myanmar's democratization process.

Jo Inge Bekkevold and Kristine Offerdal. 2014. "Norway's High North Policy and New Asian Stakeholders". Strategic AnalysisJo Inge Bekkevold and Kristine Offerdal. 2014. "Norway's High North Policy and New Asian Stakeholders". Strategic Analysis<p>​This article examines the main drivers of Norway’s High North policy towards the new Asian stakeholders. The High North became a foreign policy priority for Norway in 2005, and Norway is building on the foundations of this policy by engaging new Asian stakeholders in Arctic affairs. An aspiration to impact Asian states’ views on Arctic developments early in their policy-making processes, including on the legal and institutional framework for the Arctic through diplomatic dialogue, is one factor explaining Norway’s engagement policy. Another important factor is shared interests in economic cooperation and research. Engaging Asia in Arctic affairs gives Norway an additional platform in its dialogue with Asian countries.</p>
