“Asia Pacific Maritime Security and Rules-Based Order in Action” is the first of a four-part series of roundtable discussion hosted by the Center for Asia Pacific Strategy that addresses current and future approaches to maritime security in the Asia-Pacific region. The first panel discussion was recorded on July 27, 2021 with subsequent events scheduled for October 2021, January 2022 and March 2022. The discussion focuses on identifying current issues in the maritime domain in order to shed light on controversies and security-related questions for the international community. Through the “practitioners lens” of the three panelists, the dialogue allows for a re-thinking of the interpretation, application, and prospects of the rules-based order.
