Maritime Governance and South Asia: Trade, Security and Sustainable Development in the Indian Ocean
The rise of China, emergence of India and expansion of other economies in Asia are dramatically changing the Indo-Pacific maritime space. Technological advancements are making our accessibility to resources in, and access to oceans for political, economic and strategic purposes much easier than before. Amidst rising political and other uncertainties and the apparent threats to the ecology of the world’s oceans, there is growing attention among policymakers and researchers towards the management and governance of the oceans. Maritime Governance in South Asia is a timely book. This volume is an outcome of a conference organised by the Institute of South Asian Studies, an autonomous think tank at the National University of Singapore and an institutional member of ARTNeT.
