Dilli Series Sea Power Seminar 2018
Located at Ezhimala, in Kannur district of the state of Kerala, Indian Naval Academy (INA) is amongst the premier Armed Forces institutions of our country. It is through the hallowed portals of INA that all officer-trainees joining the Indian Navy and Indian Coast Guard pass out, in their progression to join the officer-corps of their respective Service. The academy follows a system of holistic training that caters to physical, intellectual and socio-cultural development of each cadet. In preparing its trainees for the myriad challenges of military leadership that they would encounter at sea, on land, in air, as also in both ‘outer’ and ‘inner’ (cyber) space, INA actively promotes academic and professional excellence.
Named after the historic Mount Dilli located within INA premises, Dilli Series Seminar is conducted at INA during Autumn Term every year, with an aim to expose young trainees to our vibrant maritime history and arouse in them a curiosity that will motivate them to explore further. However, after conducting four editions of this Seminar on various maritime history topics, a need was felt to provide adequate exposure to cadets on the significance of sea power for a nation, which is felt necessary for future naval officers. Keeping this requirement at the milieu, the seminar has been rechristened as ‘Dilli Series Sea Power Seminar’ under the banner theme of ‘The Significance of Sea Power’.
The theme of the fifth edition of the seminar to be held at INA on 11-12 October 2018, is ‘Geopolitical Impact of Sea Power’. Papers are invited from serving as well as retired officers, academia and cadets on the following sub themes:-
1. Sea Power and Colonisation.
2. China’s Belt and Road Initiative.
3. Gunboat Diplomacy – Sea Power for Coercion.
