Official Launch of the Centre for Non-Traditional Security Studies

6 May 2008

The S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies (RSIS), Nanyang Technological University officially launched the RSIS Centre for Non-Traditional Security (NTS) Studies on 6 May 2008 at the Traders Hotel, Singapore.

The upgrading of the RSIS-NTS programme to a Centre marked yet another milestone for the study of NTS in RSIS. The RSIS Centre for NTS Studies launched three major programmes of critical concern to the region: Pandemics, Climate Change, and Energy and Security. These research programmes involved developing research findings into actionable policy recommendations and proposing policy initiatives to address the range of NTS problems facing the Asia-Pacific region.

Dr Surin Pitsuwan, Secretary General of ASEAN, delivered the keynote address at the Centre’s launch. Also invited to grace the occasion was Singapore’s Minister for the Environment and Water Resources, Dr Yaacob Ibrahim, who delivered the opening remarks and officially launched the Centre. The official launch was followed by an inaugural lecture delivered by Prof. Alan Dupont, Director of the Centre for International Strategic Studies, University of Sydney.
