United States Programme
The United States has long been at the core of a dense network of diplomatic, economic, military, and social relationships in the Asia Pacific. U.S. policies, which invariably have significant consequences for the region, consequently demand close scrutiny. In considering the broader questions of security, order, and stability in Asia over the medium and long term, it is critical to assess the character, direction and intensity of Washington engagement with the region.
The United States Programme at RSIS pursues research, teaching, and networking activities on topics focused on, or related to, the United States. Specifically, the programme helps advance understanding of U.S. behaviour and engagement in the region by:
- Conducting and publishing scholarly and policy studies on U.S. foreign policy, defence policy, and grand strategy, particularly insofar as they impact the Asia Pacific region;
- Offering graduate and professional education to career and prospective policymakers in subjects related to U.S. foreign policy; and
- Forming and promoting professional networks between the RSIS and influential thinkers and practitioners who contribute to the debate on Asia-U.S. interactions as well as organising public talks and seminars on American-centred topics.
