Abstract: Throughout 2010, there were several notable developments which had an impact on non-traditional security (NTS) concerns. These developments informed cooperation between states and societies across the Asia-Pacific at the local, national, regional and international levels. The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) made important strides in 2010 with the convening of the ASEAN Intergovernmental Commission on Human Rights (AICHR), the ASEAN Commission on the Promotion and Protection of the Rights of Women and Children (ACWC) and the ASEAN Defence Ministers Meeting Plus Eight (ADMM Plus Eight). The establishment of these institutions reflects ASEAN’s focus on the development of responsive regional mechanisms. In order to effectively enhance national institutions as well as the region’s capacity to respond to the many NTS challenges, it is important to understand, learn from and share what social resilience Year means in the various community and social settings in the region – these institutions can facilitate that process. NTS challenges in 2010 encompassed issues of human rights and democracy, principles enshrined in the ASEAN Charter. The political crisis in Thailand and the controversial national elections in Myanmar brought these issues to the fore. It has been continually noted that there are numerous inter-linkages among the policy areas of internal conflict, health, climate change, energy and food covered in this Year in Review. During the year there were several significant international conferences which brought together policymakers, practitioners and academics to address these policy concerns. Through this Year in Review, we bring you highlights of major NTS events and issues which have taken place across the Asia-Pacific in 2010, with particular focus on Southeast Asia.
