In October 2017, the Daniel K. Inouye Asia-Pacific Center for Security Studies co-hosted a workshop on “ASEAN @50, Southeast Asia @ Risk: What should be done?” The result of the two days of Australia-Singapore-US policy trialogue is a new publication outlining the group’s recommendations.
The Southeast Asia Program and the U.S.-Asia Security Initiative in the Walter H. Shorenstein Asia-Pacific Research Center, Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies (Stanford University) prepared this program and final publication in cooperation with Trialogue partners: the Strategic and Defence Studies Centre (Australian National University); the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies (Nanyang Technological University); and the Daniel K. Inouye Asia-Pacific Center for Security Studies.
The workshop was intended to facilitate frank and creative discussion and evaluation of specific policy recommendations for consideration by specific relevant actors regarding four sets of Southeast Asia-related topics: regional security, regional infrastructure, regional economy, and improving ASEAN. Their final recommendations have been included in the 20-page report which is now available online.
