APCSS Publications

APCSS faculty conduct research about Asia-Pacific security issues in support of the Center’s mission. Some of their work, analyzing middle- to long-range Asia-Pacific security issues and their potential implications for the United States, is published by the Center. The publications aim to advance the regional discourse on security, and to provide useful analysis and information for the U.S. policy-making community, as well as for security analysts and practitioners in other Asia-Pacific countries. The publications program also supports the philosophy and mission of the Center by: enriching the curriculum, continuing alumni education, and creating exchange opportunities with counterpart institutions and libraries throughout the region.
