Evolving Strategic Stability in the Indian Ocean Region | CGSR Seminar

India and Pakistan are taking nuclear weapons to sea, China is continuing its rotational naval presence and adding a permanent military base in the region, and the United States is struggling to meet global commitments with an overstretched maritime force. Each of these developments, and the cascading strategic competitions among these four states are contributing to a new set of security concerns in a region that has historically been neglected by U.S. strategists.
