Danny and Derek welcome Kelly Grieco, senior fellow in the Reimagining U.S. Grand Strategy Program at the Stimson Center, and Jennifer Kavanagh, senior fellow in the American Statecraft Program at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, to discuss the US’s presence in the Indo-Pacific. The group defines what exactly constitutes the “Indo-Pacific”, touches on how the Beltway sees the US’s role in the region vs what it is actually doing there, how China is perceived in the region, the Taiwan issue, the dynamic with US regional allies such as Australia, strategic empathy, the future of the US’s role in the region, and more.
Check out Kelly and Jennifer’s article in Foreign Policy, “The Indo-Pacific Has Already Chosen Door No. 3”!
Kelly also recently authored the pieces “Reality Check #11: America’s Indo-Pacific Strategy Requires Tough Choices” and “Trying Harder Is a Bad China Strategy”.
Likewise, Jennifer recently wrote “Japan’s New Defense Budget Is Still Not Enough”.
