This presentation aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the South China Sea issue, one of the Asia-Pacific’s most complex and intractable territorial and maritime jurisdictional disputes. It will examine the dispute from a number of aspects, including the legal, resources, political and strategic dimensions. The speaker will explore the development of the dispute, why the issue is important, on-going tensions, the ASEAN-China conflict management process, the role of external parties and other stakeholders, whether the dispute can be resolved and outstanding risks.
