ABSTRACT
The article offers information on the security risks faced by Vietnam and Southeast Asia. Overall security for the region is considered stable but Thailand continues to be the main source of political instability and security concerns. Territorial disputes and trans-national security threats are the major issues that cause inter-state conflict but diplomatic resolutions have been used through the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). Physical safety risk in Vietnam was retained at 48 with localities only threatened by petty crime and bird flu.
