YCAPS Maritime Governance Video Contest Winners Present in Jakarta

YCAPS was pleased to support a 23-25 April 2024 track 1.5 workshop, "Martime Security, The Indo-Pacific, and Advancing Maritime Domain Awareness."

Nearly 60 participants representing 14 countries took part in the event co-hosted in Jakarta by Indonesia's National Research and Innovation Agency (Badan Riset Dan Inovasi Nasional – BRIN) and two U.S. government organizations: Near East South Asia (NESA) Center for Strategic Studies and the Daniel K.
