This conference report is the result of the inaugural East Asia Strategy Forum (EASF) organized by the Institute for Peace & Diplomacy (IPD) on November 17th-18th, 2021.
IPD launched EASF as an annual North American conference that convenes high-level policymakers, diplomats, foreign policy experts, and business leaders to engage in constructive discussions around current and emerging issues in the region. This publication summarizes the proceedings of seven panels and two keynote sessions across two days, bringing together 38 experts to discuss the geopolitics, strategic thinking, and economic trajectory of East Asia and the Pacific. All quotes are accompanied by timestamps where readers can navigate to hear from the speakers in EASF’s session recordings. EASF videos of every session may be found on IPD’s website.
IPD is grateful for the participation and insight of the experts drawn upon in this report.
