Journal of Asia Pacific Studies , 2009,
Abstract: The September 11th attack had opened the eyes of countries inthe international system regarding the threats from terrorists which is seen as capable of threatening the security of country. Many countries started talking about the development of international terrorists which are able to threaten a particular country at anytime. The success of international terrorists attacked against the most power country like United Stated has influenced the emergence of various terrorist activities all over the world including in the Southeast Asia. This region has got theworld’s attention when terrorism movements were developing like the‘Jemaah Islamiah Front’ (Indonesia), Abu Sayyaf Group and MoroIslamic Liberation Front (Philippines), Pattani Liberation Front(Thailand) and Malaysian Militant Group (Malaysia) which potentiallythreatened the security of the Southeast Asia region. These terroristgroups have changed from making limited or small attacks in the country to making serious threats and becoming bigger movements. Manypredictions have been made as to clarify how these terrorist attacks have changed into active threats. This situation has been connected to the role played by international terrorist who secretly entered the countries in the Southeast Asia to help the local terrorist. Therefore, this paper will explain the influence of international terrorist in the terrorism activities in this region. Besides that, it will also explain the background of these terrorist movements in the region and how these terrorist are able to enter a particular country and help the local terrorist movement to be moreactive in the region.
Is There Information Warfare in Southeast Asia?
Rolando Talampas
Kasarinlan : Philippine Journal of Third World Studies , 2002,
Abstract: In the post-Cold War order, Southeast Asia has been one of the most volatile regions in the world. New challenges now face both state and nonstate actors. One of the most important of these is the transformation and communication technology and its implications for the emergence of so-called information warfare. This paper examines the forms of information warfare in Southeast Asia, with passing reference also to Northeast Asia, in order to assess the scope of the threat and the various responses to it. It does do by locating the significance of information warfare in the context of economic development policies, the domestic politics of individual states, and the broader regional sociocultural trajectory. The conclusion suggests that information warfare in Southeast Asia is actually on quite a modest scale but that there are important tensions emanating from Northeast Asia that may spill over into the region.
Iron Age in Southeast Asia
Kishor K. Basa
Papers from the Institute of Archaeology , 1991, DOI: 10.5334/pia.15
Abstract: In this paper, I shall discuss the issue of the Iron Age in Southeast Asia under two headings - mainland Southeast Asia and island Southeast Asia. On the mainland, I shall discuss the evidence from Vietnani, Thailand and Peninsular Malaysia, but exclude Burma, Laos and Kampuchea for lack of relevant data. In the islands, I will discuss Indonesia, Sabah, Sarawak and the Philippines. I would argue that the Iron Age as a separate cultural entity is evident on the mainland, but in the islands there is no identifiable Bronze Age preceding the adoption of iron. By the Iron Age, I mean a period associated with iron artefacts, wet rice farming, brisk internal exchange and external trade and, in the lowland at least, a ranked society. This corresponds roughly to the General Period C of Bayard (1984b, 163, see also Higham and Kijngam 1984, 13-21). But two points should be made about this scheme: This is a heuristic device, so all sites in Southeast Asia can not be easily fitted into it. There is as yet no general agreement among scholars regarding the chronology of various periods.
Peace and Security Issues in Southeast Asia
Alexander R. Magno
Kasarinlan : Philippine Journal of Third World Studies , 1985,
Abstract: Covering many various topics, this paper is intended as a backgrounder on peace and security issues in Southeast Asia. There is a focus on the five original countries composing the ASEAN: Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, and in particular, the Philippines. The article goes through the unique characters of each country and intertwines their similarities and differences to explain the complicated histories of the region. Certain particular concerns such as US occupation, political polarization within the region, and the anxiety of a Muslim or Leftist revolt in western-minded countries are highlighted. These issues and the characteristics of Southeast Asia are assessed in regards to the affects on peace and security for the people as well as international politics.

Southeast Asia: Why Socialism?
Randolf S. David
Kasarinlan : Philippine Journal of Third World Studies , 1991,
Abstract: To the extent that socialism aims to place control of the instruments of production in the hands of the community (of residents or of direct producers), rather that just the state, and to the extent that socialism is understood to mean participatory and comprehensive planning in the use of resources, instead of leaving their disposition solely to the vagaries of market rules, socialism could hold some of the answers to the present problems of Southeast Asian peoples.
The Philippine Muslims: Our Link to Southeast Asia
Abraham P. Sakili
Kasarinlan : Philippine Journal of Third World Studies , 2000,
Abstract: Pre-colonial Philippine culture was greatly enriched through trade relations with its neighbors in Southeast Asia. In the southern islands of Islamized Mindanao emerged sultanates which had extensive ties with the region and the Muslim world beyond. When Europe took possession of Southeast Asia and its vast natural resources, the Dutch, British and French opted to leave cultures alone, allowing future generations to retain their way of life. In the Philippines, the Spaniards did otherwise, Catholicizing whatever was within reach. The Muslims of Mindanao resisted and having survived, saved their culture from disintegration and preserved the country's only link with the rest of Southeast Asia.
