This report presents the results of a survey completed by 73 security analysts from 15 countries in the Asia Pacific region plus two other "country groups"—Europe and the Pacific Islands. The survey is an outgrowth and continuation of the "Asia Pacific Security Outlook" project and book series launched in 1997 under the joint sponsorship of the Japan Center for International Exchange (JCIE), the ASEAN/ISIS institutions, and the East-West Center. Although the publication is being suspended, the questionnaire sustains the essence of the project, which is to provide a diversity of perspectives on regional security issues. The information compiled from the survey provides a generally accurate representation of the state of thinking about the security outlook in the region among security specialists.
