Mission and Vision


DKI APCSS educates, connects, and empowers security practitioners to build partner capacity, shared understanding, and networks to enhance stability in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region.


A secure Indo-Asia-Pacific region characterized by effective and accountable security sector governance in accordance with internationally accepted norms.

Guiding Principles:

  • Transparency: Foster an environment that encourages open and honest communication and processes.
  • Mutual Respect: Value perspectives that are different from our own.
  • Inclusion: Seek to involve the broadest range of stakeholders and ideas.

Our Approach

In support of the U.S. Department of Defense, and as a mission partner of U.S. Pacific Command, DKI APCSS will cultivate and maintain security networks that reinforce the rules-based international order. To this end, we will:

  • Implement our mission through executive education that is practitioner-centric, activity-based, and technology-enabled.
  • Facilitate the free exchange of ideas among security professionals and strengthen a conflict prevention framework.
  • Address security comprehensively with a lens on traditional and non-traditional issues, opportunities, and challenges.
  • Create inclusive, shared learning experiences through well-crafted programs and expert facilitation.
  • Value knowledge, networks, and leadership tools as cooperation enablers.
  • Build human capital as the means to produce policies and strategic plans for effective and accountable security sectors and institutions.
  • Foster networks centered on our alumni as well as partnerships with educational institutions.

 Our Distinct Value
