Connecting People & Ideas to Advance Mutual Interests in U.S.-Asia Relations

U.S.-Japan Network for the Future Cohort I scholar Jeffrey Hornung and Dennis Blair, both with Sasakawa Peace Foundation USA, co-authored “Missed opportunities in the Pentagon’s new maritime strategy,” published in the August 31, 2015 PacNet newsletter.  Dr. Hornung and Admiral Blair write that the Asia-Pacific Maritime Security Strategy released last month is “sound” and “demonstrates that the military aspect of the rebalance is alive and well,” but conclude “a more comprehensive treatment of the full range of maritime issues would improve U.S. engagement in the region.”
