On 28 July from 9.30-11.15 AM Geneva time, DCAF’s Asia-Pacific Unit hosted a public webinar on “Maritime Security Sector Governance and Reform in Southeast Asia”. The event followed a two-day expert workshop discussing the topic of maritime security sector governance and reform (MSSG/R) in Southeast Asia. Held as part of the APU’s Asia-Pacific SSG Network activities, this webinar was organised in collaboration with APU’s partners in Southeast Asia as well as several International and regional experts.
The webinar explored existing regional and national challenges to good MSSG in Southeast Asia and how SSR can be leveraged to improve MSSG in the region. Speakers discussed the concept of MSSG; existing challenges to providing good MSSG in Southeast Asia; the notion of MSSR and existing MSSR efforts in the region; and finally the reforms needed of security institutions at every level to improve MSSG in Southeast Asia.
