Living With Floods In A Mobile Southeast Asia

RRP $329.99

This volume contributes to a better understanding of the relationship between migration, vulnerability and resilience associated with flooding across diverse environmental, social and policy contexts in Southeast Asia. It challenges simple analyses of flooding as a singular driver of migration, and instead considers the ways in which floods figure in migration-based livelihoods and amongst already mobile populations.

The book sets out a conceptual framework based on a 'mobile political ecology' in which particular attention is paid to the multi-dimensionality, temporalities and geographies of vulnerability. Rather than simply emphasizing the capacities (or lack thereof) of individuals and households, the focus is on identifying factors that instigate, manage and perpetuate vulnerable populations and places: these include the socio-political dynamics of floods, flood hazards and risky environments, migration and migrant-based livelihoods, and the policy environments through which all of these take shape.

The book is organised around a series of tightly-argued empirical case studies from countries in the ASEAN region, where lives are marked by mobility and by floods associated with the region's monsoonal climate. Specifically, these include Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam. Together, the chapters highlight critical policy questions around the governance of migration, institutionalized disaster response strategies and broader development agendas.

RRP $381.99

This book looks at major contemporary conflicts -intra and interstate- in Southeast Asia from a conflict management perspective. Starting with the view that the conventional ASEAN conflict-management methods have ceased to be effective, it looks for new conflict-management patterns and trends by investigating seven contemporary cases of conflict in the region. Focusing on the incompatibilities involved in each case and examining how they have been managed-whether by integration, co-existence, elimination or maneuvering around the conflict-the book sheds new light on the significance of managing conflict in achieving and maintaining the stability of the Southeast Asian region. It makes a significant theoretical contribution to the field of peace and conflict studies by proposing the concept of "mediation regime" as the key to understanding current conflict management within ASEAN.
