The greater Indian Ocean region is now one of the most important parts of the world. In the 1970s, political leaders in the region were calling for an “Indian Ocean Zone of Peace.” But such a zone now is difficult to imagine as chronic instability and political dysfunction in the Indian Ocean region grow and combine with new external pressures to make its order seem fragile and vulnerable.
On January 10th, Hudson will host a discussion on the political and economic future of the Indo-Pacific region. Hudson’s Ambassador Husain Haqqani, John Balfe, and Satoru Nagao will be joined by Nikkei Asian Review commentator, Hiroyuki Akita, and Daniel Twining, President of the International Republican Institute. The conversation will be moderated by Hudson Senior Fellow Eric Brown.
