Study and Dialogue: Strengthening Nongovernmental Contributions to Regional Security Cooperation

Jakarta Roundtable

August 4, 2010

On August 4, 2010, the Japan Center for International Exchange (JCIE) and the Centre for Strategic and International Studies co-sponsored a roundtable in Jakarta as part of JCIE’s study of “Nongovernmental Contributions to Regional Security Cooperation.” The roundtable included members of the JCIE project team from around the region who have been researching the role of NGOs in dealing with Asia’s most pressing nontraditional security issues—such as global health, human trafficking, piracy, and climate change—as well as civil society practitioners and representatives from regional organizations with direct experience on these topics. Topics of discussion included what role civil society organizations have been playing in the region on issues related to security, and the potential for partnerships with regional governments, international organizations, and business to ameliorate these challenges. It was preceded by a project workshop on August 3.
