Abstract: The thesis is driven by a research puzzle of whether subregional cooperation is region-divergent or region-convergent to regionalism. This taxonomy mirrors Christopher Dent?s analytical framework, which is adapted to test the subregional anti-piracy cooperation in the Strait of Malacca and its effect on pan-ASEAN maritime security mechanisms. The main finding contends that subregional cooperation is region-convergent to regionalism. The Strait of Malacca counter-piracy cooperation has been found to bolster ASEAN-wide initiatives at securitising its maritime domain. The region-divergent and region-convergent hypotheses are tested on a representative sample of subregional and region-wide anti-piracy mechanisms. Juxtaposing the cases against theoretical and empirical claims made by the two hypotheses, the region-convergent hypothesis emerges as a more credible explanation of the subregionalism - regionalism causal relationship.
