Bridging Strategic Asia: The Rise of India in East Asia and the Implications for the U.S.-Japan Alliance
As relations between the United States, Japan, and India have evolved gradually over the past decade, the three countries, at both the official and unofficial level, have begun to consider common interests and potential cooperation on a range of international issues.
CSIS partnered with the Observer Research Foundation (ORF) to host a conference in New Delhi, India to discuss respective perspectives on East Asian affairs and bilateral as India heightens its attention to and engagement of East Asia and the United States.
For the second phase of the project, CSIS partnered with Japan Institute of International Affairs (JIIA) to examine how the U.S.-Japan alliance may be applied to relations with India. The two 2-day dialogues in Washington, D.C. (Summer 2007) and Tokyo (Winter 2008) each gathered leading representatives from the three countries to evaluate bilateral relations and cultivate common perspectives on key regional security challenges.
A corollary purpose of the initiative is to facilitate contact among a younger generation of experts to build a network that may form the basis for continued interaction and dialogue in the future. The project’s final report was released in Winter 2008.
