Drawing on the extant middle power literature, the
authors argue that the regional security strategies of
middle powers could take two forms - functional or
normative. A functional strategy means that the middle
power targets its resources to address a specific problem
that it has a high level of interest in, while a normative
strategy refers to a focus on promoting general
behavioural standards and confidence building at the
multilateral level.
