What is CSCAP?

The Japan Institute of International Affairs along with nine other international policy and research institutes established CSCAP in 1993 in Kuala Lumpur. CSCAP is a non-governmental "Track II" process for multilateral security dialogue in the Asia-Pacific. Membership has expanded and today includes institutes representing Australia, Brunei, Cambodia, Canada, China, India, Indonesia, Japan, North Korea, South Korea, Malaysia, Mongolia, Papua New Guinea, New Zealand, the Philippines, Russia, Singapore, Thailand, United States and Vietnam. CSCAP members seek to enhance regional security and stability through consultations and cooperation on policy issues and problems of mutual concern. CSCAP often addresses issues that are too sensitive for official dialogue, and supports and complements the efforts of governmental, "Track I" multilateral dialogue mechanisms such as the ASEAN Regional Forum (ARF).
