Politics in Asia

The political landscape in Asia is constantly evolving. Political dynamics within Asian states range from vibrant multi-party democracies to some of the world’s most closed and repressive regimes. Historical mistrust among states in the region has the potential to explode long dormant rivalries into conflict, while at the same time the proliferation of cooperative multilateral mechanisms offers new opportunities for peace.

Understanding the personalities, historical influences, and contemporary issues that inform the political landscape in Asia is of critical importance for long-term U.S. interests and priorities in Asia. NBR’s work on politics in Asia assesses these and other factors to provide the most in-depth analysis and insight for policymakers, academics, and the business community.
