Issues & Insights Vol. 08 – No. 18

The Pacific Forum, working with four other think tanks (the Center for a New American Security, CNA, the Institute for Defense Analysis, and the Institute for National Security Studies at the National Defense University), has been drafting an East Asia Strategy Report for the next U.S. administration. As part of this effort, the Pacific Forum has invited small groups of Young Leaders to observe those discussions and to develop their own sets of policy recommendations. Unlike other Young Leader projects, this group – in keeping with the senior group’s preferences – consisted of just Americans.
