Prof C Raja Mohan, Director of the Institute of South Asian Studies at NUS, discussed the idea of the terms “Indo-Pacific” and “Eurasia” which challenge the traditional conceptions of political geography. Prof Mohan noted that the geographic categories are interconnected and reflect the changes in the power structures that are reshaping geography. Moreover, the regions they represent are likely to see prolonged contestation among the great powers.
