Young Strategists Forum


Program Description

The Young Strategists Forum (YSF) seeks to develop a new generation of strategic thinkers for an age of constrained resources and mounting international challenges. The program involves seminars, simulations, and study tours, with a focus on the U.S.-Japan alliance and its role in the Asia-Pacific region. Participants are selected through a competitive process, open to emerging leaders—academics, journalists, policymakers, politicians, business professionals, and military officers—between the ages of 25 and 39, from the United States, Europe, Japan, and other likeminded Asian countries. Held in partnership with the Sasakawa Peace Foundation, the program is co-led by GMF Senior Advisor Dr. Daniel M. Kliman and Asia Program Coordinator Sharon Stirling-Woolsey, with Non-Resident Senior Fellow and Princeton Professor Dr. Aaron Friedberg serving as faculty.

For more information on YSF please contact Sharon Stirling-Woolsey.

Young Strategists Forum Paper Series

Cultivating a new generation of strategic thinkers in the United States, Europe, and other major Asian democracies requires more than a single conference. To achieve this objective, GMF initiated the Young Strategists Paper Series to give Forum participants a new platform for voicing their perspectives on key military, political, and economic issues. The policy papers resulting from the 2012 and 2013 Young Strategists Forums can be found below.
