State actors are to some extend responsible for the rise of ethnic separatism and religious extremism in Southeast Asia, with negative consequences for human security.

SUMMARY

  • Separatism and extremism in Southeast Asia have unfortunately been associated with Islam as seen in Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Thailand and have contributed to the hybridization of security provision in these countries.
  • State actors, such as the military, the police, the defense bureaucracy, and politicians are perceived to have been accountable for the rise of these twin phenomena in Southeast Asia, and could be major causes of the hybridization of security provision in the subregion.
  • Regional cooperation to stem the impact of external forces like daesh/ISIS/ISIL have been stepping up in recent years, as seen in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).
