This policy brief examines maritime security and governance in the Indian Ocean region across nine issue areas including the blue economy, coastal welfare, rule of law, piracy and armed robbery, illicit trades, maritime mixed migration, fisheries, maritime enforcement capacity, and international cooperation. The brief looks at progress being made across these issue areas, as well as the challenges that remain to sustainable maritime security in the region. It also suggests several areas of policy prioritization of relevance to the Indian Ocean Rim Association (IORA) that could have positive impacts across issue areas and help establish a self-reinforcing, positive cycle of maritime security in the Indian Ocean region.
