S. Bateman, 'India and regional maritime security' in A. Mukherjee & C. Mohan(ed), India's Naval Strategy and Asian Security (2016) 215-236.


This chapter addresses the emerging multilateral security architecture in the Indo-Pacific, and evaluates India's contributions to the regional institutions concerned with maritime security. It assesses the strengths and weaknesses of these contributions. While the chapter considers the situation in what is now described as the Indo-Pacific spanning both the Indian Ocean Region (IOR) and East Asia, it pays particular attention to the likelihood of a stable cooperative maritime security regime in the IOR and considers the implications for India's maritime strategy.
