Abstract

The paper looks at security relations in the Asia Pacific region with a special focus on China, India and Pakistan. In doing so, the paper applies Gerald Segal's model to these case studies and tries to make an assessment as to how secure or insecure the region is. The four factors which have been taken into consideration to make this assessment include the nature of political systems, the levels of economic inter dependence, the role played by regional organisations and the balance of power. Finally, the paper argues, whilst some of these areas look good, a lot of them don't and much more needs to be done to make the region more secure. Going by this assessment, the prospects for security, by and large, look bleak.
