Shawn explains his series:
In this series of posts starting with this introduction, I will do the following:
1. Explain Dr. Barnett's "Ten Commandments of Globalization" in the context of Asia-Pacific maritime security and trade.
2. Describe the current, key concerns supply chain managers have in regards to maritime security in the Asia-Pacific.
3. Summarize the potential "flashpoints" that would threaten maritime security and their potential impact on key supply chain nodes in the Asia-Pacific.
4. Comment on the role of security in existing cross-border, government-level discussions of logistics integration in Northeast Asia (China, Korea, and Japan).
5. Speculate on the possibility of a formal, comprehensive maritime security regime coming to fruition in the Asia-Pacific.
Despite the fact that I have no experience in the military, the military-market nexus is intriguing and of strong interest to me in the development of my supply chain knowledge. As a result, I look forward to the process of writing on these topics.
