NBR’s Political and Security Affairs (PSA) group hosts innovative research initiatives focused on the political and security issues in the Asia-Pacific that are of critical importance to the United States.

PSA assembles project teams from NBR’s extensive network of Asia specialists and international relations experts from across the United States and around the world. This flexible approach produces research that directly informs key leaders in all branches of the U.S. government as well as within the academic and corporate communities. NBR leadership interacts with key policymakers on a regular basis to ensure that PSA initiatives address today’s and tomorrow’s pressing issues.
