About This Event
From Oct. 3-5, the U.S. Naval War College and Australia’s Bond University will be co-hosting the conference “Between Scylla and Charybdis: Is there a Middle Path for Middle Powers in the Indo‑Pacific Region?” This event will focus on countries such as South Korea, Pakistan, Indonesia, Malaysia and Vietnam and analyze their responses to the dueling pressures of Beijing’s Belt and Road Initiative and Washington’s emerging Indo-Pacific Strategy.
With the generous support of the U.S. Naval War College’s John A. van Beuren Chair of Asia-Pacific Studies, the conference will bring together U. S. and Australian national security experts and scholars from across the Indo-Pacific region to discuss the intra-regional implications of Sino-American competition.
The U.S. Naval War College attendees will include Timothy D. Hoyt, John Nicholas Brown Chair of Counterterrorism and Director of the Advanced Strategist Program, Colin Jackson, Chair of the Strategic and Operational Research Department, and Andrew R. Wilson, John A. van Beuren Chair of Asia-Pacific Studies.
