Participants will explore the revival, use and meaning of the Indo-Pacific concept aiming to identify the risks of emerging conflict, areas of great power competition, and collaboration. The most recent US National Security Strategy and National Defense Strategy both identify Russia and China as revisionist powers which constitute a greater threat than terrorism. Has the US, now seeking greater military capacity and economic revival through a desire to protect perceived US interests, and a greater willingness to engage in protectionism, subsumed the Asia-Pacific within a larger Indo-Pacific and what does this mean for regional states?

与会者将探讨印度洋-太平洋地区概念的兴起、作用和意义,旨在识别潜在冲突的风险,以及大国竞争和大国合作的领域。美国最近的国家安全战略和国防战略都明确的认为,对美国来说,俄罗斯和中国远比恐怖主义的威胁更大。美国正在通过寻求更强大的军事能力和经济复苏来保护自己的利益,其保护主义的倾向也越来越强烈,那么美国是否会将亚太地区纳入范围更广的印度洋-太平洋地区呢?这对本地区的国家来说又意味着什么?

The 19th Party Congress consolidated, affirmed and strengthened President Xi's increasingly global China Dream narrative placing the Belt and Road, AIIB and China's socialist state directed market capitalism, system at 'centre stage'. However, does the Indo-Pacific concept validate a larger Japanese and Indian role within regional relations with middle powers such as Australia and Indonesia also participants within an alternative conception characterised by collective security, rules-based order and democratic politics.

中共第十九次全国代表大会巩固并强化了习近平的理念,认为日益国际化的中国梦的核心组成部分包括一带一路政策、亚投行和社会主义国家指导的市场资本主义体系。然而,印度洋-太平洋地区的概念,是否证明了日本和印度这两个大国在本地区将扮演更重要的角色?本地区的中等强国,如澳大利亚和印度尼西亚的特征,可以用另一种概念描述:更加注重集体安全、遵守规则秩序和民主政治。
