The Carnegie Asia Program in Washington and Beijing studies disruptive security, governance, and technological risks that threaten peace and growth in the Asia Pacific region.
We explore how China’s power and capacity for action have grown—and the political and economic challenges Beijing faces at home.
Our work seeks to develop new frameworks and policy initiatives for the U.S.-Japan alliance to address diverse strategic challenges in the Asia Pacific.
We offer incisive analysis and recommendations on key aspects of policy around the Korean Peninsula.
We study disruptive risks: weak institutions, uneven state capacity, challenges to growth, regulatory diversity, and trade conflict.
In Asia, rapid growth and strong economic fundamentals have lifted hundreds of millions from poverty. But significant cracks have emerged in this hopeful story. Our program recommends policies to manage the growing threats to Asia’s long peace, especially from competition among major powers. We also help decisionmakers address social, institutional, and political obstacles to achieving Asia’s development potential.
Asia is changing — but that cannot be understood only by following government negotiations and national trade and investment statistics. Asia Local/Global looks beyond national capitals for the local trends and perspectives now shaping the region’s future.
