What's The Point?

The Point is the blog of Asia Policy Point, an independent Washington, DC, research center studying US-Asia policy. It identifies and discusses research tools for the Asia policy analyst. The Point also highlights the significance of under-reported current events, trends, and challenges in the Asia-Pacific region. The blog draws from the policy research of the APP’s staff and international membership.

APP publishes a weekly email report, APP Policy Calendar, for its members on events, news, and opinion critical to the US-Asia policy analyst. Membership is open to all. Please contact us for information on joining APP or engaging us to assist you with your research and analysis.

The opinions expressed on this site are those of the authors, and not necessarily those of APP or its board. Your privacy is important to us. We will keep your information confidential except where disclosure is required and permitted by law. We do not sell, rent, share, exchange, or otherwise disclose your data to others.

In addition, we do not share, nor have we ever shared our office space with any other organization or entity. APP members are welcome to visit at any time and out-of-town members are welcome to use our office as their own while visiting Washington.
