Emerging Leaders in East Asia

The Next Generation of Political Leadership in China, Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan

By J. Patrick Boyd, L. Gordon Flake, Cheng Li, Kenneth B. Pyle, Shelley Rigger, and Richard J. Samuels

Major powers in East Asia are undergoing important political leadership transitions. In China, Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan, a new generation is emerging, equipped with unique experiences and backgrounds. Exploring how these future leaders are likely to respond to regional trends and anticipating their policy preferences as they assume increasingly important leadership positions is critical to a well-grounded understanding of Northeast Asia in the 21st century. This report represents the culmination of a year-long initiative launched by NBR to provide U.S. government and corporate leaders with a better understanding of East Asia’s future leadership. By examining the qualities and characteristics that define these rising leaders and distinguish them from their predecessors, the initiative explores the possible implications of their emerging influence for U.S. foreign, economic, and security policy interests.

By Natalie Bravo, Clara Gillispie, Mikkal E. Herberg, Hanan Nugroho, Alexandra Stuart, and Nikos Tsafos

However, rapidly rising domestic demand, ongoing subsidies, and declining production threaten Indonesia's energy security. In this NBR Special Report, senior specialists on energy and geopolitics examine the key energy and environmental security challenges facing Indonesia and explore strategies for promoting greater access to energy while stimulating sustainable sector investment.

Islamic Education in Bangladesh and Pakistan

Trends in Tertiary Institutions

By Mumtaz Ahmad and Matthew J. Nelson

In the immediate aftermath of the September 11, 2001 attacks against the United States, analysts and policymakers struggled to determine how South Asia had become "lost" to Islamist extremism and terrorism. A small—but vocal—group of Western-based academics suggested that the proliferation of madrasas, or Islamic schools, were at least in part to blame. The controversial debates sparked by these institutions led NBR in summer 2005 to launch a comprehensive three year survey of Islamic education in South Asia, to examine in depth the relationship between Islamic education and Islamist militancy in the region. This report represents the culmination of the third and final year of NBR’s South Asia Education Survey, which focused exclusively on trends in tertiary-level religious and secular education in Bangladesh and Pakistan. Research findings from these two countries continue to shed new light on the emerging socio-political landscape of Muslim South Asia, with critical implications for U.S. policy and security interests in the region.
