PacNet #26 – America’s Next East Asian Strategy: Listening to Generational Differences

The beginning of every new U.S. administration produces a flurry of reports and recommendations for the new president. Today is no exception. One constituency often sidelined in these discussions is the next generation. This prompted the Pacific Forum to ask a group of its Young Leaders (YLs) to offer impressions to supplement "The United States and the Asia-Pacific Region: Security Strategy for the Obama Administration," [ insights_v09n01.pdf], a report produced by the Pacific Forum in conjunction with the Center for Naval Analyses (CNA), the Center for a New American Security (CNAS), the Institute for Defense Analysis (IDA), and the Institute for National Security Studies at the National Defense University (NDU).
