The Strategic Perspectives on the Indo-Pacific podcast follows the Chatham House research team as it travels to the United Kingdom, the United States, France, India, the Kingdom of Tonga and Japan to talk to strategic and policy experts about how they see the region evolving over the next few years.
Recorded between September 2019 and March 2020, the series captures trends as they were before COVID-19 and the global lockdown. The research paper, Indo-Pacific strategies, perceptions and partnerships: The view from seven countries, continues the story as it developed over the following year.
In this episode, recorded in September 2019, the team is in Washington D. C., at the home of the project’s American partner, the East-West Center in Washington. Research lead Cleo Paskal speaks with Dr. Satu Limaye, Ambassador C. Steven McGann and Richard Fontaine.
