Strategic Asia Program
The Strategic Asia Program aims to strengthen and inform strategic and policy decisions by providing innovative research on challenges and opportunities for U.S. national interests in the Asia-Pacific region.
Strategic Asia 2014–15: U.S. Alliances and Partnerships at the Center of Global Power examines the trajectories of U.S. alliance and partner relationships in the Indo-Pacific in light of the region’s shifting strategic landscape.
Leading experts provide comprehensive assessments of the current state of the United States' relations with its five treaty allies, as well as with emerging "strategic partners" in Asia, and draw implications for U.S. policy.

The Strategic Asia Program:
- Offers an authoritative assessment of Asia’s evolving strategic environment
- Looks forward five years, and in some cases beyond, to contemplate the future of the region
- Maintains a record of data and analysis on trends in Asia’s changing strategic landscape
Guided by Research Director Ashley J. Tellis (Carnegie Endowment for International Peace), this major ongoing research initiative publishes an annual edited volume and executive brief.
The Strategic Asia Program also maintains an online database focused on indicators of the changing balance of power in the region, which provides an interactive mapping tool that tracks current Asian military developments. For details on this database, please contact the Strategic Asia Team.
The Strategic Asia Program also serves as the umbrella for private, tailored briefings for a broad range of U.S. government agencies and policymakers, as well as for leaders of the private sector—including several Fortune 500 companies. Topics cover a broad range of economic, political, security, energy, demographic, and other issues vital to understand dynamics within the Asia-Pacific.
