Strauss and Clements Announce the Launch of the Asia Policy Program
Sep 24, 2021 | Asia Policy Program
The Strauss Center for International Security and Law and the Clements Center for National Security are pleased to announce the launch of a new joint program at the University of Texas at Austin: the Asia Policy Program.
The Asia Policy Program (APP) will address the region’s increasing importance in global politics, U.S. foreign policy, and U.S. national security. The program will foster research, dialogue, and education about policy-relevant developments and questions in the Indo-Pacific. Its activities also will include a dynamic speaker series and book talks, with scholars and policymakers joining the UT community to share their work and discuss its implications for current policy debates. Information on our upcoming events can be found here.
The Asia Policy Program also will serve as a hub for an array of existing University of Texas educational and research capabilities concerned with Asia, helping to bring those communities together and drawing further attention to the collective impact of their work. APP-affiliated faculty hail from many different schools and departments at UT, teaching a wide array of courses and reaching a broad audience of students. The founding director of the Asia Policy Program is Dr. Sheena Chestnut Greitens.
The APP has received a start-up grant for its work from the Carnegie Corporation of New York (CCNY). The grant will fund our speaker series; a workshop in Washington, DC; and other activities for an initial two-year period. We very much appreciate CCNY’s support for our work.
