Abstract:

This report examines existing potential for a regional naval conflict occurring in the Indian Ocean during the next decade. It identifies the political and military factors which determine the interplay of forces which will be decisive, if conflict becomes a reality. The analytical framework rests on three considerations 1 the Indian Ocean as a conflict-promoting entity, 2 South Asian political relationships and threat perceptions, and 3 naval ambitions, capabilities, and shortcomings.
