Indo-Pacific Ocean Initiative - an opportunity to create new institutions for maritime governance
Australian Journal of Maritime and Ocean Affairs
The idea of an Indo-Pacific region as a ‘supra region’ encompassing two ocean bodies is nascent. The region comprises multiple diverse and disparate sub-regions and thus lacks geopolitical coherence and a common framework.

This article examines how this could be done by leveraging extant institutions.
