The Indian Ocean basin is rapidly becoming a powerhouse of economic, social, cultural and political development. The countries and populations around the Indian Ocean rim are already experiencing profound change.

Indian Ocean Futures 2014 brings together academics, government, industry and communities to identify these changes and discuss the challenges for the future of the region and its peoples.

Join us in March, 2014 on the shores of the Indian Ocean in the historic port city of Fremantle for an opportunity to present, discuss and further new approaches to the region, its potentials, challenges and peoples.
