Security concerns in the Asia-Pacific are on the rise. Tensions over territorial disputes have spiked across the region. China is menacing its neighbors. North Korea continues to pursue a dangerous nuclear weapons capability. The United States has announced a pivot to Asia, but defense budget cuts and challenges elsewhere in the world may undermine the president's promises to America's allies. Japan's prime minister Shinzō Abe is looking to expand the role that his country's military plays in ensuring regional peace.

Against this backdrop, AEI, the Chinese Council of Advanced Policy Studies, and the Tokyo Foundation co-hosted the third annual Taiwan-US-Japan Trilateral Security Dialogue. Held in Taipei on October 15, 2013, the conference brought together scholars and officials from the United States, Japan, and Taiwan to discuss security and economic matters of mutual importance. This year's conference featured panel discussions on regional security challenges in East Asia, energy security in Asia, and regional economic integration, as well as a parliamentary dialogue involving a number of current and former legislators. 

A number of presenters wrote papers, which are provided here along with transcripts from some of the sessions.
