Abstract:

United States and Vietnam interests are currently strategically aligned for mutual benefit in Southeast Asia. Because Vietnam s integration into the world economy and international community exposes the communist country to free market and democratic principles, the United States rebalance to the Asia-Pacific provides a timely occasion to achieve shared national security interests by accelerating Vietnam s aspirations for greater regional and international cooperation in response to China s expanding aggressiveness in the South China Sea. This Strategy Research Project examines how a U.S.-Vietnam strategic relationship can be leveraged to bolster regional security and promote common goals through collaboration with regional stakeholders and integration of Vietnam into democratically influenced international organizations.
