CAPP Programs

In addition to CAPP-funded work—made possible by financial support from individuals, foundations, and government agencies—there are a number of programs that fund research efforts focusing on specific regions and issues within the Asia Pacific.

  • Asia Pacific Fellows Program

    The Asia Pacific Fellows Program is a one-year residency for mid- to senior-career professionals in the Asia Pacific. Selected on a rolling basis, AP fellows work on a pre-approved research project and take courses at the Pardee RAND Graduate School in Santa Monica.

  • Asia Pacific Research Forum

    The Asia-Pacific Research Forum is an informal community of interest supported by the RAND Center for Asia Pacific Policy and Defense and Political Sciences Department to give Asia-Pacific scholars at RAND a platform to share resources, information, and ideas.

  • CAPP-Funded Research

    CAPP-funded research projects explore a wide range of issues impacting the Asia Pacific. Explore some of this recently published CAPP-funded work.

  • Tang Institute for U.S.-China Relations

    The Tang Institute seeks to enhance the understanding of relations between the U.S. and China, and between China and other nations. To accomplish this, the institute supports research on issues such as trade and investment, intellectual property, manufacturing and division of labor, currency, and China's relations with the region.

  • Tang Chair in China Policy Studies

    With generous support from the Cyrus and Michael Tang Foundation, RAND created the Tang Chair in China Policy Studies. Its objectives are to develop and execute a research agenda focused on China's policies for sustainable growth, build partnerships with research institutes in China, and mentor China studies scholars at RAND.

  • Chair in Korea Policy Studies

    With support from the Korea Foundation, the Chair in Korea Policy Studies focuses on Korean national security and defense issues. Its funds will be directed toward establishing intellectual leadership, mentoring young scholars at RAND, and partnering with Korean research institutes.
