About the Panel Discussion

Five out of the eight South Asian countries have direct access to the Indian Ocean, yet research about South Asia tends to focus on the region’s landmass. Much less attention is paid to the extensive maritime space that links South Asian countries, provides their populations with vital access to resources, connects their economies to global trade networks and perhaps, most importantly, contributes to law and order at sea.

At a time when the Indian Ocean has gained great interest and relevance for many global actors, the role and location of South Asia will have critical implications for strategic calculations and alignment. Furthermore, if trade imbalances are to be tackled and economic globalization to regain steam, enhancing South Asia’s ability to export and import through the oceans is essential. Finally, climate change is projected to impact South Asia massively. Coping with humanitarian crises and natural disasters will need critical investments in maritime capacities and cooperation.
