Singapore, Malaysia and the Water Issue: A Concern Desecuritised
Date of Issue2001
S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies
This paper focuses on one core issue: is Singapore’s water security vulnerable? The answer to that question will determine the prospect for conflict between Singapore and Malaysia over water. In recent years, a number of scholars have contended that Singapore, ostensibly bereft of sufficient domestic water resources, may launch a military strike into Malaysia to secure the water supplies should the latter prematurely terminate the water links. This paper argues otherwise.
