NTS Studies, RSIS

Singapore, Singapore

The Centre for Non-Traditional Security (NTS) Studies conducts research and produce analyses aimed at furthering awareness and building capacity to address NTS issues and challenges in the Asia-Pacific region and beyond. Non-traditional security (NTS) issues are defined as challenges to the survival and well-being of peoples and states that arise from non-military sources, such as climate change, resource scarcity, infectious diseases, natural disasters, irregular migration, food shortages, people smuggling, drug trafficking and transnational crime. These dangers are transnational in scope, defying unilateral remedies and requiring comprehensive political, economic and social responses, as well as the humanitarian use of military force.
