In 2011, President Obama outlined a strategic concept to increase the United States’ attention on the Asia-Pacific region by rebalancing U.S. engagements, activities, and resources toward this vital area of the world. In order for the U.S. and its allies to hedge against potentially destabilizing contingencies in the Asia-Pacific region, the role of security partners should be further examined and better defined. Effective cooperation between Washington and its partners hinges on the political, economic, and technological capital for building partnership capacity. Innovative alternative approaches to ensuring regional security and the development and implementation of a strategic vision for the role of U.S. and security partners are needed to help sustain peace, stability, and prosperity in the Asia-Pacific region.
During this conference, the keynote speaker and panelists addressed innovative alternative approaches to ensuring regional security and developing a strategic vision for the role of U.S. and regional security partners to help sustain peace, stability, and prosperity in the Asia-Pacific region.
