In the post-Cold War era, U.S. troops have conducted a variety of non-traditional security cooperation such as humanitarian assistance and disaster relief to establish a broad-range security network and to boost the confidence of allies in the U.S. In the Asia Pacific, the Philippines is the largest recipient of U.S. assistance in disaster relief. Obviously, the long existence of the U.S.-Philippine alliance distinguishes the Philippines from the Southeast Asian neighbors. Nevertheless, the U.S.-Philippine alliance has experienced several ups-and-downs in the last two decades. Thus, it is worthwhile studying whether it is U.S. disaster relief assistance that saves the alliance from collapse or the alliance itself that facilitates disaster cooperation. In view of the U.S.-Philippine relations from President Arroyo through President Duterte, this paper finds that U.S. disaster relief assistance to the Philippines goes hand-in-hand with the advancement of bilateral military cooperation. This finding contradicts the conventional wisdom that disaster cooperation spurs breakthroughs in bilateral relations.
