Message from Head of Centre

As Head of the RSIS Centre for Non-Traditional Security (NTS) Studies Centre, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our website.
 
The Centre was established in May 2008, building on the success of RSIS research programme on non-traditional security which started in 1999 and the founding of the Consortium of Non-Traditional Security Studies in Asia (NTS-Asia) in 2007. Having won the highest grant in the competitive MacArthur Foundation Asia Security Initiative (ASI) in 2009 and chosen as one of only three core institutions in Asia to lead the ASI cluster on Internal Challenges and Cross Border Challenges, the Centre has since grown from a modest outfit to a team of 17 faculty, research and administrative full-time staff working on the four key NTS themes of climate change, environmental security and natural disasters; energy and human security; health and human security; and internal and cross-border conflict.
 
The year so far has been an activity-filled year with the Centre organising and co-organising close to 16 international conferences, workshops and seminars; and initiating new publications such the NTS Perspectives (quarterly publications comprising in-depth analyses of timely NTS issues) and the MacArthur Asia Security Initiative Working Paper series. Our work is reaching out to a wider audience and we are confident that the Centre can contribute significantly to the NTS discourse as it serves its role as a leader in the field, and as a networking hub for researchers, policy analysts, policymakers, NGOs and media in Asia and farther afield interested in NTS issues.
 
I hope you will find this website useful and informative and I invite you to visit it regularly for updates on the Centre’s events, activities, recent publications and multimedia resources. This website remains a work in progress and I encourage you to contact us at NTS_Centre@ntu.edu.sg if you have any comments or suggestions as to how we can improve it further. In addition, our work under the MacArthur Asia Security Initiative and the Consortium of NTS-Asia can also be viewed via links on the homepage to both websites. Thank you very much for your interest in the RSIS Centre for NTS Studies and I wish you an enjoyable read.
