Abstract

The linkage efforts, strategies and outcomes of Taiwan, Singapore, the Philippines and Malaysia reveal significant insights about the innovative approaches being adopted by small powers to solve their security concerns and the trade-offs they make to do so. Given the enormous strategic constraints that they face, the small powers in general have heavily relied on others to obtain security; favoured the status-quo; religiously adhered to international laws and institutions; and displayed high levels of paranoia.1 The insecurities induced by such constraints have fuelled the efforts toward what I call statist (state-centric) and humanist (human-centric) forms of linkages. Here, I illustrate the two-way relationship between security and trade: on the one hand, various of forms of trade have been used to promote, enhance and secure statist and humanist security referents/interests; (b) various types of security threats/issues have influenced the facilitation and outcome of trade.
