The Indo-Pacific is a new strategic denomination for the wider Asian region, giving a key role to India as a regional power and denoting an area in which China plays a relatively lesser role. Initially floated by Japanese Prime Minister Abe in 2007, the Trump administration adopted the concept in 2017. Can a “Free and Open Indo-Pacific” (FOIP) strategy promote security cooperation, or counter China’s strong maritime ambitions? What are the prospects for the revived “Quad” (officially the “Japan-Australia-India-US Consultations on the Indo-Pacific”)? How do states in the Indo-Pacific hedge against an uncertain future amidst US-China rivalry? What is the impact of shifting alliances, strategic partnerships, and new forms of alignment on the balance of power in the region? Can Europe play a meaningful role in the Indo-Pacific?
