- A collaborative event conducted in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region that addresses cutting-edge current and/or future security and security-cooperation challenges.
- Formatted to produce actionable outputs and executable outcomes, resulting in unique value-added to partnering organizations and participants.
- Topics target urgent and important security issues that are seen as ‘too hard’ or ‘too new’ to address in a large, more structured forum.
- Workshop duration is 2 to 5 days, and typically attended by 30 to 50 participants.
- Selection of participants focuses heavily on alumni of DKI APCSS; such alumni are included in order to improve open discussions among new participants and to offer alumni continuing education opportunities at the next/higher level.
- Upon completion, participants are introduced to various ways in which they may connect to others for the purposes of discussion, information sharing, and catalyzing cooperation.
In-Resident workshops will for the most part mirror the In-Region workshops previously described with regard to scope and concept. When held in-resident, the bilateral workshops afford increased candor and openness of participants, and multi-lateral workshops typically have broader nation involvement as target countries are not contained to a sub-region. With in-resident workshops there will be greater participation by USINDOPACOM and other U.S. agencies.
