About Us

The West Philippine Sea Institute promotes awareness of, and the exchange of ideas on, rules-based order in the West Philippine Sea, its adjacent waters and the Indo-Pacific Region in general. Its online publication, The West Philippine Sea Monitor, is free and open-access.

Our mission is to help disseminate information that is relevant, timely and insightful so that public awareness is improved, engagement is increased, and discussions thrive amongst stakeholders towards a shared understanding of the best way moving forward.
