Since the turn of the century, an important trend toward new or
expanded defense cooperation among U.S. allies and security partners
in the Indo-Pacific has been unfolding. Such a trend has the potential
to create, realign, or simply reflect changes in regional actors’ interests,
identities, and commitments in important ways that could reinforce
or reduce U.S. influence; help knit the region more closely together in
ways that complicate aggression by revisionist powers; and create new
and dynamic bi-, tri-, and multilateral groupings. This report tracks
and analyzes the growth in defense cooperation among U.S. allies and
security partners in several key areas. It looks at three key questions:
What sorts of new or expanded defense activities are U.S. allies and
security partners in the Indo-Pacific engaging in over roughly the last
two decades? Why are these actors cooperating in new areas and/or
elevating their engagements in existing spaces? And what are the implications
for U.S. national security as well as regional stability of these
new or expanded types of defense cooperation?
