Issues & Insights Vol. 07 – No. 10

In September 2006, the Asia-Pacific Security Forum (APSF) held its 10th meeting, bringing together academics and analysts the Taiwan, Southeast Asia, the United States, and Europe. The APSF focused on three themes: (1) nationalism, democracy, and security in East Asia; (2) the search for energy and resources in the Asia-Pacific; and (3) regional security organizations in the Asia-Pacific. In addition to bringing together experts, the meeting also included members of the Pacific Forum Young Leaders Program who participated in the meeting and shared their views on these issues. Not only did they engage actively in discussions and debate with senior participants, but they also collaborated among themselves to write the essays in this volume.
