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.
Ideas and analysis are valuable, but Carnegie’s business is improving policies, decisionmaking, and real-world outcomes. Excellence in scholarship and responsiveness to changing global circumstances define our work, and we are committed to making a concrete difference in the world. Join us in this shared commitment and connect with us today.
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.
