The aim of the conference is to establish an innovative, multidisciplinary analytical framework that will generate research and policy directions for harmonizing the core interests and cooperative actions of Asian countries over key maritime security and non-traditional security issues.

 

The conference will bring together Asian, American and European historians of maritime powers, international law scholars, security experts, scientists and environmentalists and commercial interests in fishery, oil and gas, insurance, transport, and finance from research centers, think tanks, and authorities.

 

The conference results will be taken forward to shape the further work of the project, and will inform future policy and research debates. Individual sessions are informed by a series of keynote speakers, including scholars from Cambridge, Oxford and London King’s College.
