Realising the Indo-Pacific: Tasks for India's Regional Integration

The Perth USAsia Centre's flagship publication, Realising the Indo-Pacific: Tasks for India's Regional Integration, was launched in September 2017 in New Delhi. This publication brought together emerging scholars from Australia and India to explore India's regional integration into the Indo-Pacific. As the concept of the 'Indo-Pacific' region has increasingly gained momentum, there remains many opportunities and challenges for India to regionally integrate and realise the concept of the Indo-Pacific.
