Geopolitical Orientations, Regionalism and Security in the Indian Ocean Hardback

Edited by Dennis (Professor of Indian Ocean Studies, Curtin University, Australia) Rumley, Sanjay Chaturvedi

Part of the Routledge Revivals series


First published in 2004, this book is the inaugural volume of the Indian Ocean Research Group (IORG) and is based on a selection of papers presented at the IORG launch in Chandigarh in November 2002.

The volume emphasizes the complexity and historical and contemporary geopolitical significance of the Indian Ocean Region (IOR).

It also propagates the necessity for increased intra-regional cooperation, especially in terms of economic and environmental security, maritime boundaries, sea lane security and ocean management, in the spirit of open regionalism, in order to ensure a more secure IOR.

In addition, the volume initiates an agenda for future social science policy-orientated research.

The book should be of particular interest to policy-makers, business people and academics, as well as citizens of the IOR.
