Cooperation and integration in the Baltic region and Southeast Asia: A comparative perspective

International conference

The conference, which had been organised in joint efforts by the University of Social Sciences and Humanities (USSH) and KAS, addressed traditional and non-traditional security issues, challenges and opportunities for cooperation in the Baltic region in comparison to trends in Southeast Asia. While soft security matters play an increasingly important role in the two regions, hard security issues are still of relevance. Experts showed how experiences made in the Baltic region may help Southeast Asia and especially ASEAN on the way to further cooperation and integration.
