Project Overview

Reconnecting Asia maps new linkages—digital, transport, energy, and other infrastructure—that are reshaping economic and geopolitical realities. It was founded with a start-up grant from the Brzezinski Institute on Geostrategy and has benefited from the expertise of the leadership, research, advisory, and development teams below, and the valuable insights of our partners.
