Themes of particular interest for 2020 and 2021

The journal seeks research articles, discussion papers, policy papers and book reviews on major Indian Ocean issues such as:

  • regional geopolitics
  • resource exploitation
  • governance
  • environmental degradation and conservation
  • maritime jurisdiction, coastal management, ocean laws, maritime security
  • underdevelopment
  • Indian Ocean island states
  • human and environmental security
  • human trade and cooperation
  • civil society
  • water security, food security, land grabs
  • nuclear security and diplomacy issues
  • piracy, terrorism, other challenges to maritime power; and other matters of geostrategic interest
  • new regionalisms – the rise of China, the future of the Indo-Pacific; connections between geoeconomics and geosecurities

Interstate relations and traditional and non-traditional security threats thus constitute the substantive, but not necessarily exclusive, contents of the Journal of the Indian Ocean Region.
