Our Research & Initiatives

The Institute for Indo-Pacific Affairs is dedicated to promoting a deeper understanding of the Indo-Pacific region through research and analysis. Our team of experts conducts research on a wide range of issues affecting the region, from security and economics to culture and society. We also initiate and lead projects that aim to address some of the most pressing challenges facing the region today.

We organize conferences, workshops, and seminars that bring together scholars, policymakers, and practitioners to discuss and debate the latest issues and trends in the region. Our publications include research reports, articles and books that provide insights for policymakers, academics, and the general public. We also produce a podcast and run Kwentuhan, a digital platform that reaches a wide range of audiences, including students, professionals, and community groups.
