The Stratbase ADR Institute for Strategic and International Studies (ADRi) is an independent strategic research organization. With its international focus, ADRi believes that Philippine and regional security and development can be achieved through the cooperation of the public and private sectors.

ADRi traces its roots to the Stratbase Research Institute (SRI) established in 2004. SRI focused on providing strategic solutions to domestic governance, socio-economic, and other policy concerns. It aimed to contribute to Philippine development through research and responsive policy alternatives.

As SRI sought solutions, East Asia’s affairs 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.
