International Relations in Southeast Asia

Series Editors:

The series will publish works on theory, research and critical views on the state of theorizing, researching, studying and applying the concept of the ‘international’ in Southeast Asia by prominent, emerging and novice scholars. It highly welcomes works that forges a link between disciplinary IR’s theoretical richness and area study of Southeast Asia’s empirical application, e.g. field research. The series promotes an exploration of the emergence and hybridity of Southeast Asian theories, praxes, methods, and approaches to IR, including a survey of the richness of the very idea of the ‘international’ in terms of historical and recent flow of people, goods, and ideas contributing to the creation of regions and region-ness. In light of the development of alternate cosmologies and emergence of Asian IR, this series encourages interdisciplinarity and eclectic contributions from both scholars and practitioners to facilitate a holistic approach towards the study of IR in the region.

This is the flagship series of the Philippine International Studies Organization (www.phiso.org). There are three categories or types of works that represent IR in the region and are offered by the series: (1) Theories and Methodologies, (2) Praxes and Applications, and (3) Thematic Issues and Trends. The first category includes works that explore, discover and innovate methods in attaining new theories or theoretical engagement with Western IR. The second type mostly concentrates on critical approaches to the academic structure of IR establishment in the region as well as studies on traditional and human security. The last, but not the least, is contemporary issues and trends affecting the whole region and its relatedness to other regional worlds.
