US–Japan Global Cooperation in an Age of Disruption

by Akihiko Tanaka, Kiyoteru Tsutsui, Shihoko Goto, Rumi Aoyama, Kazuto Suzuki, Tyler Goodspeed, Daniel Okimotovia Hoover Institution Press
Tuesday, May 17, 2022

For over six decades, the US-Japan Alliance has played a key role in maintaining stability in East Asia. Now, with the rise of China, the North Korean nuclear threat, instability in Europe, and competition in the high-tech sector, the alliance will play an increasingly important role. Washington and Tokyo can collaborate on next-generation technology, encourage democratic systems, and play an even larger, if more challenging, security role.


Can The Intelligence Community Tell What’s Brewing In Afghanistan?

by Reuel Marc Gerechtvia The Caravan Notebook
Thursday, May 5, 2022

Although the age of mass-casualty Islamic terrorism may be ending, American intelligence ought to assume worst-case scenarios. Afghanistan and Pakistan remain the two most likely locales for Al-Qa’ida—still the only organization to have organized a mass-casualty attack from Western-based cells—to organize new assaults against the United States. Is the CIA capable of designing and running operations in Taliban-controlled Afghanistan that could detect and thwart new conspiracies?

The authors set forth a new framework to revitalize the governance of economic policy based on our nation’s foundational system of natural liberty.

When Indonesia Meets The Middle East: Thoughts On Center-Periphery Relations

by Giora Elirazvia The Caravan Notebook
Wednesday, April 27, 2022

Though often considered peripheral to the Islamic world, the huge Muslim population of Indonesia has for centuries been affiliated with the Sunni Middle East. Wide concern over rising extremism originating in the Middle East can be noticed in democratic Indonesia, which has encouraged democratic transition in the Arab world and launched initiatives to promote moderate voices of Islam globally. In this way Indonesia challenges the centuries-old “order” of center-periphery relations.

by Glenn Tiffert, Oliver McPherson-Smithvia Hoover Institution Press
Wednesday, April 20, 2022

Dans toute l'Afrique subsaharienne, la Chine a fait irruption sur la scène en tant que partenaire de premier plan. Si cette situation offre aux nations africaines de riches opportunités, elle les expose également aux risques d'un pouvoir de subversion (« sharp power ») autoritaire et fait peser une menace sur les conditions de la démocratie dans la région. Quels sont les signaux d'alarme ? Et comment les nations africaines peuvent-elles s'engager avec la Chine tout en sauvegardant leur souveraineté et en progressant vers une gouvernance, un développement et une démocratie de bonne qualité ?

A Four-Faction Heuristic ‘WXYZ’ Model For Exploring US Arms Control And Disarmament Politics

by Christopher Fordvia Hoover Institution Press
Thursday, March 31, 2022

This essay offers a heuristic to help explain US arms control policy and politics over the last two decades. In this framing, policy decisions are the result of contestation, bargaining, and coalition dynamics between four “WXYZ” factions within the policy community, ranging from dovish “Ws” to hawkish “Zs.” This schema can illuminate major US arms control policy debates and decisions over the last generation.


What Was And What Might Have Been: The Threats And Wars In Afghanistan And Iraq

by Ambassador Paul Wolfowitzvia Hoover Institution Press
Tuesday, March 29, 2022

In the wake of American withdrawal from Afghanistan, it has become possible to evaluate more holistically the causes, implementation, and effects of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. This article looks back twenty years to the disaster of 9/11 to consider not only the pressures and risks that policy makers faced when making those wars’ momentous decisions, but also the alternative, counterfactual choices that might have produced better outcomes sooner.

by Glenn Tiffert, Oliver McPherson-Smithvia Hoover Institution Press
Monday, March 21, 2022

Across sub-Saharan Africa, China has burst on to the scene as a leading partner.

Where are the red flags? And how can African nations engage with China while safeguarding their sovereignty and advancing good governance, development, and democracy?
