The Indo-Pacific Security Initiative aims to produce commentary and analysis from a variety of experts, key regional stakeholders, and voices from the Indo-Pacific directly and consistently in order to provide concrete, actionable policy recommendations that bring together the United States with its European and Indo-Pacific allies and partners to develop a strategic perspective for adapting and revitalizing the rules-based international order.

Indo-Pacific Security Initiative research and reports engage with key regional stakeholders, decision-makers and opinion leaders to produce content incorporating regional voices and develop action-oriented strategies to shape policy of the United States and its allies and partners.

Upcoming events

The Indo-Pacific Security Initiative regularly convenes high-level discussions that engage policymakers, experts, and officials to make real-world impact including changing or informing policies of the US government or its allies and partners, as well as affecting corporate sector policies, by offering concrete, actionable policy recommendations on a range of traditional and non-traditional issues.
