Policy Alternatives for Integrating Bilateral and Multilateral Regional Security Approaches in the Asia Pacific

In May 2009 the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation launched the Asia Security Initiative (ASI) – a world-wide network of 27 policy research institutions which aimed to develop new ideas for overcoming the security challenges faced by Asia-Pacific nations. The Australian National University (ANU) has been one of the Initiative's partner institutions through the ANU-MacArthur Asia Security Initiative (ANU-MASI) Partnership Project.

Entitled Policy Alternatives for Integrating Bilateral and Multilateral Regional Security Approaches in the Asia Pacific, the Project focuses on how traditional security ties between the US, its treaty partners and other states in the Asia-Pacific fit into that region's growing and increasingly crucial multilateral security politics.

The Project has led to numerous research conferences and publishing outcomes, including the Asian Security Seminar Series and the ANU-MASI Policy Background Paper series.
