The East-West Center in Washington's congressional staff programs are bipartisan educational certificate programs that aim to equip congressional staffers with greater knowledge of US-Indo-Pacific policy in order to better understand America's role in and engagement with this dynamic region and the policy implications that will directly engage Congress.

This bipartisan educational certificate program aims to equip congressional staffers with the information and analyses necessary to appreciate the significance of the Korean peninsula and the US role in the region. By focusing on crucial forward-looking issues, CSPK is designed to provide staffers with a more comprehensive understanding of Korea and its significance to US Indo-Pacific policy. This program is in partnership with, and sponsored by, the Korea Economic Institute of America.

By focusing on crucial forward-looking issues, CSPP is designed to provide staffers with a more comprehensive understanding of the region and its significance to US Indo-Pacific policy. This program follows the launch of The Pacific Islands Matter for America/America Matters for the Pacific Islands, sponsored by the US Department of the Interior's Office of Insular Affairs and with support from the Congressional Pacific Islands Caucus.
