Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) International Security Program has released a new brief, Stability in the Indo-Pacific: An Australia-India-U.S Trilateral Perspective.

This brief summarises a track 1.5 dialogue that brought together Australian, Indian, and U.S. analysts and policymakers to discuss the respective countries’ views of changing regional security dynamics and the role for emerging technologies to impact—positively or negatively—strategic stability.

Over two days of robust dialogue, participants identified growing strategic convergence on China’s increasingly aggressive behavior as a primary driver of concerns over regional stability. Discussion identified, however, that despite seeing China as a main driver of concern, the United States, Australia, and India are concerned about China’s action in different geographic areas.

Participants noted growing areas of technology cooperation between them, though they also identified political, policy, and regulatory hurdles that continue to slow tech development, transfer, and equipment production. Finally, participants noted that China’s expanded nuclear capability merits deeper thinking within and among each of the three capitals about the possibility that China could change its nuclear strategy or doctrine—and the potential implications of such a change.
