This Saturday, March 8, is International Women’s Day.  APCSS is proud to play a leading role in U.S. contributions to Women Peace and Security (WPS) efforts.  This effort is a priority because it makes so much sense.

admin On June 20, 2013, in Director's Vector, by admin

TSC 13-1 is rapidly approaching completion.  It may seem that I always say this, but what a great group!  The discussions have been lively, spirited and illuminating.  For example, I have learned a great deal from Rear Admiral Anne Cullerre of the French Navy regarding the role of her country in the Asia-Pacific region.  Anne […]

Director’s Vector: Well Centered

APCSS Director On February 25, 2012, in Director's Vector, by APCSS Director

The placement of APCSS in Honolulu, Hawaii was far from accidental. As Asian and Pacific as the United States gets, Hawaii is also home to U.S. Pacific Command and all of the service (Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine) component commands. Special Operations Command – Pacific is right here as well, giving a great center […]

Director’s Vector: First Look

APCSS Director On February 24, 2012, in Director's Vector, by APCSS Director

My first month as Director has been exciting, encouraging and fascinating.  My sense that this as much a time of opportunity as risk in Asia-Pacific, not just for the U.S. but for the region at large, has been reinforced.  I am convinced that APCSS is a unique resource that can help enable national security practitioners […]
