India is the most consequential strategic actor in the Indian Ocean but its capabilities and intentions — and therefore the ocean’s strategic trajectory — will continue to evolve. This Asia Policy roundtable — drawn from a strategic futures exercise hosted by the ANU National Security College (NSC) — surveys divergent scenarios for key states’ strategic behaviour in the Indian Ocean and the policy implications of these scenarios for these states and other actors in the region.

This futures exercise is part of a multi-year project on Indian Ocean security undertaken by the NSC with support from the Australian Department of Defence.

The journal article first appeared in Asia Policy.
