VISION

The School of Integrated Coastal and Maritime Security Studies (SICMSS) has been established with a vision to develop as a centre of knowledge creation and dissemination, in the field of coastal and maritime security studies in particular and ocean governance in general.

MISSION

SICMSS fosters to become a leading nodal School of excellence in teaching, research, training and extension activities in the area of Coastal and Maritime Security and to become a National Think Tank by providing policy-oriented research and filling up the gap of quality research on contemporary issues.

Broadly SICMSS envisages the following in the field of Coastal and Maritime Security, Commercial Maritime Law and Port Security:

  • To facilitate discourse between academia and practitioners.
  • To conduct high quality research and teaching.
  • To identify the evolving trends and conduct India centric research keeping global context in mind.

SCHOOL OF INTEGRATED COASTAL AND MARITIME SECURITY STUDIES (SICMSS)

India occupies a dominant position in the IOR. Extending some thousand kilometres into the Indian Ocean, the Indian peninsula has a vast coastline which stretches to 7,517 km, distributed amongst nine coastal states and four Union Territories. India is exposed to multiple integrated coastal and maritime security challenges pursuant to its long coastline, geographical position and rising importance of coastal and maritime in the strategic theatre internationally.

We at SICMSS seek to explore and assess the trajectory of law, policy and governance systems affecting this strategic space at national, regional and international level. SICMSS with its resources and experiences seeks to provide excellent academic, research, training and capacity building support to national agencies in ensuring national coastal and maritime security agencies and other stakeholders.
