The Asia-Pacific Center for Security Studies is a Department of Defense academic institute that addresses regional and global security issues. Military and civilian representatives of the U.S. and Asia-Pacific nations participate in our comprehensive program of executive education, professional exchanges and outreach events, both in Hawaii and throughout the Asia-Pacific region. APCSS’ mission is to educate, connect, and empower security practitioners to advance Asia-Pacific security. APCSS also enhances regional security through the creation of collaborative communities of interest among military and civilian officials throughout the region, and examines fundamental causes of relevant security challenges and the most effective means to counter them.

Since opening in 1995, the Asia-Pacific Center for Security Studies has had representatives from more than 90 countries attend courses at the Center.
