This report describes the evolving perceptions of strategic shifts in the Indo-Pacific, in order to identify possible pathways towards deeper, more effective partnerships between like-minded countries. The report is supported by six field research reports – one each from the United States, United Kingdom, France, India, the Kingdom of Tonga, and Japan. The field research reports include essays by local experts, often from the in-country partner think tanks that facilitated the research: the East-West Center in Washington D.C., Institut français des relations internationales (Ifri) in Paris, Gateway House in Mumbai, the Royal Oceania Institute in Nuku’alofa, and the Indo-Pacific Studies Group in Tokyo.
