Foreign Policy Research Institute A Nation Must Think Before it Acts Dimensions of Security in the Indo-Pacific: Deter, Enable, and Defend


Dimensions of Security in the Indo-Pacific: Deter, Enable, and Defend

February 13, 2024 | 3:30 pm to 4:30 pm | National Security Program

About the Event

What is it like to be intercepted by a Chinese fighter pilot and why does the United States put its military members in harm’s way to maintain freedom of navigation through the global commons? How can the United States leverage the UN’s Women, Peace and Security initiative to enable its like-minded partners in the Indo-Pacific to uphold the liberal international order and resist Chinese coercion? And, how important are missile defense systems to deterring and, if necessary, defeating Chinese adventurism in their region?

Join FPRI and the US Army War College’s Eisenhower Series College Program for a wide-ranging and open-minded discussion about the US military’s roles and opportunities to continue upholding the principles of the liberal international order in the Indo-Pacific region.
