Contested Spaces: A Renewed Approach to Southeast Asia
March 2019 CNAS report
As competition intensifies between the United States and China to shape the course of the 21st century, Southeast Asia is becoming an increasingly contested space. A region where geopolitical orientations remain fluid, Southeast Asia lies at the front line of Beijing’s expanding diplomatic influence, economic leverage, and military capability. At stake is whether countries across the region can retain their economic sovereignty and freedom of decision, and whether governance in the region will broadly trend toward greater freedom and openness, or the opposite.

[This report] presents a series of high-impact recommendations for how the United States can enhance its engagement with Southeast Asia across economic, security, and diplomatic domains. The authors argue that America should work closely with its allies and partners – above all Japan – to ensure that Southeast Asia can chart its own course.
