    SEOUL, KOREA, SOUTH — Established in 2002, the East Asia Institute (EAI) is an independent think-tank based in Seoul, Korea, dedicated to developing ideas and formulating policy recommendations on the main challenges facing the region. This project would address East Asia’s middle powers and their roles in reconfiguring the hub-and-spoke model of bilateral alliances in the region. It would examine the role of middle powers in the context of United States-China relations. Funds would be used for partial staff salaries, conferences, travel, and publications. This fits into our Asia Security Initiative (ASI) grantmaking strategy to strengthen stability in the Asia-Pacific region.
