The Center for Asia-Pacific Resilience and Innovation (CAPRI) was established in 2022 to enhance global resilience and promote innovative governance by drawing on the experience of the Asia-Pacific region through comparative public policy research. Based in Taipei, CAPRI is a nongovernmental, nonpartisan, international organization focused on identifying and meeting challenges to resilience at the intersection of health, economic growth, and environmental sustainability in the region. CAPRI’s research is meant to provide informed and insightful policy analysis to governments, academic and business leaders, the news media, civil society organizations, and the informed public in the Asia-Pacific region and worldwide. In Taiwan, CAPRI is funded by some of Taiwan’s leading corporations and philanthropists. CAPRI’s founding board of directors includes policy analysts as well as corporate and civic leaders from Europe, Taiwan, and the United States, and it is chaired by CAPRI’s founder Professor Syaru Shirley Lin, a former partner at Goldman Sachs and a faculty member at the University of Virginia, Chinese University of Hong Kong, and National Chengchi University in Taiwan. CAPRI’s work is also guided by an International Advisory Council chaired by Malcolm Turnbull, former Prime Minister of Australia.
CAPRI serves as an Asia-Pacific hub for several international organizations involved in policy research and advocacy on the challenges to economic, health, and environmental resilience policies that can increase resilience, improve governance, and prepare societies for future challenges. These research partners include the Brookings Institution in Washington, DC; the Miller Center of Public Affairs in Charlottesville, Virginia; the Reform for Resilience Commission, headquartered at the Chan School of Public Health at Harvard University; and the Partnership for Health System Sustainability and Resilience (PHSSR), initiated by the World Economic Forum and the London School of Economics and Political Science.
