Since 1984, PISA has worked with partner organizations in Asia to enhance capacity at the national and regional levels to address emerging concerns in the Asia Pacific region. Working with its network of global experts, PISA creates issue-specific programs in areas of mutual concern between the United States and Asia with particular emphasis on transnational issues such as: climate change, human security and international governance.
PISA works directly with university faculty, government ministries, policy makers, research institutions, and non-governmental organizations in the broad area of international affairs.
How Does PISA carry out its mission?
PISA programs are built on dual foundations of mutual trust and respect. Projects are developed in consultation with partner institutions in Asia and in response to the needs of Asia-based organizations. Periodically, PISA responds to requests for program development and/or partnership with US-based organizations working with Asia on United States Foreign Policy toward the Asia Pacific Region. From project conception to implementation, PISA works in spirited collaboration to ensure that program outcomes are successfully achieved.
