US Indo-Pacific Strategy and Southeast Asia

July 8, 2022
Other Event in Singapore

ISEAS-Yusof Ishak Institute will organize a webinar on the US Indo-Pacific Strategy and Southeast Asia this 8 July 2022 from 9:00 am to 10:00 am (Singapore/GMT+7).

As the United States and its major allies and partners organize to compete against an increasingly assertive China and belligerent Russia, can Southeast Asia maintain its core tenets of foreign policy strategy such as ASEAN centrality and avoidance of great power collision? Is the Biden administration attuned to concerns with ASEAN? Will the Quad, AUKUS, and Asian allies’ growing connection to NATO leave room for ASEAN’s agency in the international relations of Asia?

Dr. Michael Green, Chief Executive Officer of the United States Studies Centre in Sydney and former Senior Director for Asia in the US National Security Council staff will decipher trends in US strategy towards the Indo-Pacific and the implications for Southeast Asia.
