Program

As commander of the U.S. Pacific Command from March 2012 to May 2015, retired U.S. Navy Admiral Samuel J. Locklear III was a key architect of the military and economic strategy known as the “pivot to Asia.” In 2013, Defense News ranked him eleventh out of the 100 most influential people in global defense issues. He joins director of the RAND Center for Asia Pacific Policy Rafiq Dossani to share his assessment of the rapidly changing geopolitical environment of the Asia-Pacific. Just days after the inauguration, they will discuss issues on the Asia-Pacific agenda for the new administration, including climate change and strategic U.S. economic and security interests in the region.
