Satu Limaye Ph.D., director of the East West Center in Washington, discussed “America’s Re-Balancing Toward Asia: What It Means for the U.S. and the Region” at the Public Diplomacy Alumni Association luncheon program on April 2, 2013 at DACOR-Bacon House in Washington, D.C.

Dr. Limaye described and provided context for developments surrounding the change in recent U.S. policy direction called the “pivot” or “re-balance” towards Asia, and the implications of this change on defense, education, trade and other issues. He also outlined related work of the East-West Center, including a key project of the organization called Asia Matters for America/America Matters for Asia. The project includes an interactive Web site that enables visitors to see Asia’s impact on individual states and congressional districts.

From July 1998 to October 2006 he directed the research and publications division of the Asia-Pacific Center for Security Studies, a Department of Defense academic institute in Honolulu.

Dr. Limaye earned his doctorate in international relations at Oxford University as a Marshall Scholar, following undergraduate studies at Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service. He was an Abe Fellow at the National Endowment for Democracy’s International Forum for Democratic Studies, and a Luce Scholar and head of programs on South Asia at the Japan Institute of International Affairs in Tokyo.
