Pursuing Security in a Dynamic Northeast Asia (PSDNEA)

On November 17–18, 2006, as part of the dedication of the Kenneth B. and Anne H.H. Pyle Center for Northeast Asian Studies, NBR convened a conference entitled Pursuing Security in a Dynamic Northeast Asia. A select group of the world’s top Northeast Asia specialists were invited to identify and discuss the critical issues that will impact the future security environment of this vital region. Conference participants represented a broad spectrum of views from academia, business, government, and the policy research community.

As the Center's core research program, PSDNEA seeks to establish the Pyle Center as a hub through which the rising generation of American scholars, analysts, and policymakers will engage with and increase understanding of their counterparts across Northeast Asia.
