Pardee Center Research Scientist Austin Matthews and Diplometrics Program Lead Collin Meisel shared a piece on the War on the Rocks platform titled Seeking Serenity: A New American Influence Strategy for Southeast Asia and Beyond. In the piece, Austin and Collin use the Pardee Center's Formal Bilateral Influence Capacity (FBIC) Index to analyze the state of competition between China and the United States in Southeast Asia and offer recommendations for policymakers. They suggest a less confrontational approach toward American influence abroad, focusing on bilateral relationships where the United States enjoys structural advantages relative to China and supporting a new vision of regional intradependence.
