Description

This monograph is an audit of the policies pursued by the Obama Administration in support of the so-called “pivot to Asia.” After explaining why U.S. President Barack Obama chose to accord top priority to the Indo-Asia-Pacific (IAP) region, Dr. Douglas T. Stuart discusses the diplomatic, information, military, and economic instruments of power, which were available to Washington to accomplish its goals.

This monograph concludes with three lessons for strategists, based on the Obama Administration’s experience with the pivot strategy. All three lessons illustrate that the only thing harder than formulating a sophisticated long-term strategy is implementing and sustaining the policies that are implicit in that strategy.
