The impacts of rising energy prices and climate change on human collectivities, the human security issues brought to the fore by the 2011 Fukushima disaster and the Arab Spring demonstrations have underlined the need for non-traditional approaches to energy security. The non-military, and often transnational, nature of the emerging threats calls for responses that cut across state borders, disciplines and issues. This volume contributes to this need to broaden the energy security discourse by unpacking energy security using the non-traditional security (NTS) framework. The need to ensure the welfare of peoples and states is discussed within the context of the imperatives of sustainable development. The analyses of the region’s energy policies encompass issues related to the development and governance of energy markets, as well as the socioeconomic and environmental implications of efforts to achieve energy security through diversification into sources such as hydropower, biofuels, coal and nuclear energy.

The aim of this volume on Energy and Non-Traditional Security in Asia, together with its accompanying volume on Rethinking Energy Security: A Non-Traditional View of Human Security is to widen the debate on energy security beyond the conventional views of what energy security means to the security and well-being of states and societies, thus encouraging a more comprehensive approach towards energy security.
