Indo-Pacific Profile

The ‘Indo-Pacific’ is a geo-political and strategic construct used internationally by policy makers, strategists, and historians. Its emergence as an analytical tool reflects the significance of the evolving balance of power and interdependencies amongst littoral states in the Indian and Pacific Oceans in the 21st century.
