Developments in the South China Sea: Intensified Strategic Competition over an Internationalised Trouble Water
Following a decade of new waves of tension, the South China Sea situation has entered a new status-quo with uncertain future. While the territorial and maritime disputes remain unresolvable in the coming decade, the South China Sea has become not only an area of claiming maritime resources, but also an arena for intensified strategic competition and powers play. This presentation seeks to describe and analyze the recent development in the South China Sea, logics behind parties’ strategy and activities, China-US-ASEAN interactions and their implications for regional security.
