Driven by rising oil demand and prices and active initiatives, Asia has become an important player in international energy security, as well as maritime security. The timely volume examines China’s and Japan’s efforts for securing energy supplies overseas and maritime energy transport, their cooperation and rivalry as well as the implications for Asia up to recent years. It also examines the growing shipping traffic in the Straits of Malacca and security of sea lanes in Asia. Viewing energy and maritime security as global public goods, the volume surveys and proposes multilateral initiatives for provisioning these goods.
