Managing Strategic Competition in Asia

On November 15, 2017, NBR held a Capitol Hill discussion on developing U.S. national security strategies for the Asia-Pacific to mark the release of the seventeenth volume in the Strategic Asia series: Strategic Asia 2017-18: Power, Ideas, and Military Strategy in the Asia-Pacific.

The event featured a panel of select Strategic Asia authors discussing how Asia's major powers have developed military strategies to address their most significant challenges, moderated by research director Ashley J. Tellis. The panel was followed by a timely discussion on implications for U.S. policy and strategy in the region led by NBR's president Richard J. Ellings.
