Building the Free and Open Indo-Pacific: Conceptual and Institutional Challenges

Grant Year: 2021


Kenneth Weinstein will explore how the United States and its allies and partners in the Indo-Pacific region can develop a strategic and institutional framework to compete with China. He will conduct research and interviews and organize workshops and scenario-based exercises to explore the different perspectives of states that advocate for a free and open Indo-Pacific region and to spur a discussion about what kinds of institutions might be necessary and appropriate to build and sustain such a framework. The project’s findings will appear in a series of reports.
