The Obama Administration has spoken of a “pivot” or “rebalance” toward Asia a foreign policy priority. But the U.S. is not alone in turning its sites toward the Pacific. The European Union continues to focus more and more on the Asian continent as well.

It does this through scholars-in-residence, seminars, policy study groups, media commentary, international conferences and publications. Activities cover a wide range of topics, from the role of NATO, the European Union and the OSCE to European energy security, trade disputes, challenges to democracy, and counter-terrorism.
