Structures, Shocks and Norm Change: Explaining the Late Rise
of Asia’s Defence Diplomacy
David Capie
Contemporary Southeast Asia: A Journal of International and Strategic
Affairs, Volume 35, Number 1, April 2013, pp. 1-26 (Article)

This article examines why Asia’s multilateral defence diplomacy has
been a relative laggard when compared to other forms of institutionalized
security dialogue, and what explains its recent rise. It argues that
explanations that stress the “catalytic role” of external shocks such
as the Asian Financial Crisis (AFC) or changes in the distribution of
power or threats are underdetermining. Rather, Asia’s new multilateral
defence diplomacy reflects strategic emulation on the part of ASEAN
elites, who localized ideas initially put forward by outsiders in order to
maintain ASEAN’s central place in the regional security architecture.
Its rise has also been helped by the changing role of militaries in
some East Asian states and its rapid institutionalization owes much
to historical contingency, in particular the interests of two influential
ASEAN Chairs in Indonesia and Vietnam. The final part of the
article briefly assesses the future prospects and influence of regional
multilateral defence diplomacy
