Could Australia and the 22 other sovereign nations that stretch across Eastern and Southern Africa, the southern parts of West Asia, South Asia, South-East Asia and Australasia who share the Indian Ocean be on the cusp of a Golden Age of prosperity?

The UWA Public Policy Institute has established itself as a key player in the public policy space since its establishment in 2018. Now in its fifth year, the Institute is marking an exciting new phase as it expands its impact beyond borders and across the region with its most ambitious report yet.

With expert contributions from 20 international leaders and academics, Indian Ocean Futures casts an eye across the dynamics of the region, exploring the proposition there is real scope to develop the collective prosperity, sustainability and connectivity of the region.

From a reimagining of the Ocean as a trade destination rather than simply a route through which trade passes, through to using quinoa to alleviate food insecurity in South Asia, and unlocking the boundless potential of the African diaspora in Australia, Indian Ocean Futures is a prospectus for a concentration of minds, stimulating fresh debate about the extent, limits and nature of greater regional cohesion.
