    02 June 2017.  In this article for the Straits Times, William Choong notes that unlike in past years, China is not likely to be in the spotlight at the IISS Shangri-La Dialogue 2017.

In this article for the Straits Times, Tim Huxley argues that while the original reasons for the FPDA's formation have become redundant, some thought and energy could enable it to play an important role in the stability of Southeast Asia.

    01 June 2017.  The United States has a major opportunity to reassure its Southeast Asian allies at the IISS Shangri-La Dialogue this weekend.
