The Stratbase-Albert Del Rosario Institute for Strategic and International Studies (ADRi) traces its roots to the Stratbase Research Institute (SRI) established in 2004. SRI had originally focused on providing strategic solutions on governance, socio-economic, and other policy issues and concerns at the domestic level. Its primary objective was to contribute to Philippine development through research and responsive policy alternatives.
Over the course of SRI’s search for solutions, East Asia’s affairs more frequently inserted themselves into the equation. There was and is a clear relation between domestic and regional affairs; movement in one reverberates in the other.
ADRi believes that national and regional development and security can be achieved through the collaboration between the public and private sectors.
