WELCOME TO THE

RISING POWERS INITIATIVE

The Rising Powers Initiative is a multi-year, cross-national research effort that examines the role of domestic identities and foreign policy debates of aspiring powers in Asia. The Initiative is hosted by the Sigur Center for Asian Studies at the George Washington University’s Elliott School of International Affairs. The RPI brings together an internationally recognized team of scholars from both the United States and across the globe to analyze and compare the foreign policy thinking in today’s rising powers.
