I personally rely on the modern principles of multilateral cooperation or regional collective action and the application of some elementary game theory. This is necessary to understand because regional collective actions where choices and their consequences are dependent on one’s own actions and those of others. This book answers this modern principle as it features selected theses from School of International Relations, President University students that discuss issues of maritime security in the Indo-Pacific region, where readers will find selected case studies of maritime territorial disputes to multilateral cooperation in facing maritime security threats.
A powerful naval force will safeguard world peace. It will bring sincerity and friendship, promote bright future of peaceful cooperation and mutual development exactly just like the real maritime fulcrum navy should be built and developed to face global challenges. And this wonderful book exactly could be the starting point for such thought to begin.
