The international strategic scene is dominated, among other issues, by the emergence of the 'rising powers' in Asia, namely India and China. The response to these rising powers by the existing major powers continues to be closely watched and analysed. The response of the US and Japan to the rising powers is of particular interest to policy planners and scholars. The US, as the superpower with a major Asian presence, is the key determinant of such responses. Its long- standing policy of engaging China is matched by its lasting security relationship with Japan. These two strands of US policy in Asia have been given a new meaning by its emerging strategic relations with India. Japan, as the major economic power in Asia, has had a mixed relationship with China. In recent years, even as trade and investments between China and Japan have improved, historical memories have created tensions between the two. Japan has in recent years also started to build a stronger and deeper relationship with India.

The interplay of evolving relationships between the US, China, Japan and India thus provides an intriguing matrix for analysis. To study these new developments, the Delhi Policy Group started a research project titled 'Asian Security Dynamic' in January 2007. The objective of this project was to examine the strategic dynamics amongst the US and Japan with the 'rising powers', China and India, and the manner in which these relationships would develop.
