The INDPAC series was established in 2013 as an ongoing strategy focused and issues inspired forum for the PACIFIC series of events.
INDPAC Littoral 2019 has been developed by Industry Defence and Security Australia Limited with renowned strategic affairs analyst and naval affairs expert Dr. Alexey D. Muraviev, Associate Professor of National Security and Strategic Studies at Perth’s Curtin University.
Prof. Muraviev is a member of the Australian Member Committee, Council for Security Cooperation in the Asia-Pacific region (AU-CSCAP), member of the International Institute for Strategic Studies (London) and a founder and manager of the IndPac series on maritime policy and strategy. He has published widely on matters of national and international security and advises members of state and federal governments on foreign policy and national security matters.
“The evolving littoral realities are paramount to national security of the majority if not all members of the Indo-Asia-Pacific community,” he said. “Over the past decade the spectrum of threats in the littoral has grown and matured. Besides well recognised asymmetric threats such as maritimised crime, border security, environmental challenges and other a new strategic challenge is on the horizon – asymmetric naval warfare. IndPac Littoral offers a platform to improve situational awareness and identify effective solutions on how to counter this growing spectrum of threats challenges. This forum is a must for representatives of littoral nations, naval, border force, police and customs personnel, PRIMES and SMEs responsible for design and manufacturing of multi-domain capability suitable for littoral operations, security consultants and academics with interests in maritime security and defence.”
