A Go-To Resource for Reliable Asia Expertise

Our origins date back to Senator Henry M. “Scoop” Jackson, who identified the urgent need for an institution that would tap the best Asia expertise to inform and strengthen policy decisions on issues affecting U.S. interests in the region.

Building on Senator Jackson’s legacy, NBR engages in a demand-driven approach to reach out to Congress and cultivate relationships on both sides of the aisle.

Through sustained interaction in high-trust, nonpartisan settings, NBR is a go-to resource for policymakers needing reliable and useful Asia expertise.
