Energy and Maritime Security in the Indo-Pacific

EnergyMaritimeThe “Energy and Maritime Security in the Indo Pacific” project investigates the domestic political processes through which five pivotal Asian states—China, India, Japan, the Philippines, and Vietnam—formulate their energy and maritime security policies. The findings from this project will enhance the capacity of policymakers in the United States to understand debates within Asia between those who see security competition and conflict in the energy and maritime arena as inevitable and those who see more market-oriented approaches to energy security by unpacking the domestic political dynamics in each of the five countries of this project. Furthermore, the project, which is generously supported by the MacArthur Foundation, will develop alternate U.S. strategies to ameliorate a sharpening of the energy-military linkages in the region.
