The origins and prospects of Lithuania‘s Indo-Pacific Strategy


Lithuania announced its Indo-Pacific Strategy in the summer of 2023. One may wonder why a small country like Lithuania needs such a document, especially in the context of existing EU strategy towards the same region. At the same time, many accepted that as an unsurprising step which further develops Lithuania's recent foreign policy direction positioned around more diverse value-based partnerships. The webinar will provide more details about the origins of the strategy and give insights what practical impact the document may have in the near future.

Assoc. Prof. Dr. Linas Didvalis has acquired his PhD of political science from International Christian University in Tokyo, Japan. At the moment he is heading development of East Asian studies at Vytautas Magnus University (Kaunas, Lithuania) and teaching courses on contemporary East Asian domestic and international politics.
