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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
