He is also editor of the IISS Adelphi Paper series and, particularly since he became Executive Director of IISS-Asia in Singapore in April 2007, has been closely involved in organising the Shangri-La Dialogue (the Asia Security Summit), an annual IISS conference in Singapore for Asia-Pacific defence ministers and military chiefs.
