CfAF Founding Partner, Dr Anita Sykes-Kelleher, will be presenting a paper entitled ‘Let Me Tell You a Story’ at the forthcoming Indian Ocean Futures Conference. This international conference, presented by the Australia-Asia-Pacific Institute Indian Ocean Futures Initiative, is being held from 25-28 March in Fremantle, Western Australia.
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. The conference papers address present and future interrelationships, connections and compatibilities between three major themes and the sub-topics in each:
- Culture – communities, identities, texts, communication, the arts, tourism
- Sustainability – environment, climate, ecology, health, resources, spaces
- Security – food, energy, borders, human rights, populations, education, climate, environmental
