Annual Forum Series on Ocean Frontiers


Keynote (5-6pm)
Security, Governance and Peace in the Indo-Pacific: A New Look at Sustainable Common Security
Former Canadian Ambassador to the UN and President of the Rideau Institute, Hon. Mdm. Peggy Mason

Panel Discussion (6-7pm)
The Indo-Pacific: An Evolving Security Order?
Eminent panelists include Embassy and Consulate Leads

This forum brings together scholars and officials to discuss a range of trans-frontier security issues emerging from the Indo-Pacific region. Of critical importance is clarity on what the “Indo-Pacific” construct means and implies, both as an epistemic category of geostrategic vision and as a geophysical domain in the larger context of perilous maritime-space-nuclear nexus. This forum also aims to promote insights into international security governance norms, Canada’s role in Indo-Pacific security governance, and Canadian engagement in trans-pacific peace processes through ASEAN, NATO, and the U.N. The larger purpose is to foster critical thinking on geostrategic issues management, and promote discussions on peaceful ways of establishing global security governance mechanisms.
