CogitAsia is the blog for the Southeast Asia Program (SEAP) at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) in Washington D.C.

As a foreign policy think tank, CSIS is constantly monitoring important developments throughout the region. CogitAsia is our channel to those who are interested in going beyond the headlines and gaining a deeper understanding of the issues.

SEAP is a hotbed for discussion and opinions. As such, CogitAsia’s wealth of knowledge will include contributions from country experts, academics, local experts, and seasoned politicians from around the world who will provide in-depth analysis and interpretations of the problems that are rocking the region—from elections to suspicious statecraft (Chatham House Rule will apply).

Southeast Asia is fast becoming a large part of American interest, and it is vital for thinkers and policymakers from both sides of the Pacific to participate in exchanging ideas and engaging in meaningful conversation. This blog will serve that purpose.

CSIS does not take specific policy positions; accordingly, all views, positions, and conclusions expressed in this blog should be understood to be solely those of the author(s).
