Summary This volume is a compilation of the papers presented during the inaugural RSIS-Center for Naval Analyses Joint Conference held in Singapore on 9-10 November 2011, on the theme of "Navigating the Indo-Pacific Arc". The Conference sought to explore maritime security issues across the Indo-Pacific region, with the goal of investigating the value and implications of the strategic connectivity between its various sub-regions. Maritime strategic connectivity is increasing along the Indo-Pacific Arc, a natural result of the trans-oceanic nature of the Indo-Pacific itself and the growth of intra- Asian trade. The various expert contributors to this volume contend that this trend has engendered new opportunities and responsibilities for multilateral cooperation, but has also seen the rise of tensions arising from territorial disputes and great power rivalry. Despite the complications brought about by regional tensions, the volume finds that engagement and cooperation can and should be prioritised by regional countries, given the pressing need to address the numerous maritime security issues in the region
