The Geopolitics of the South China Sea
Keynote Speaker: Dr. Remy Davison
What is the future of the South China Sea (SCS) dispute? The SCS is the biggest trade route in the world. In its landmark 2016 judgement, the Permanent Court of Arbitration ruled against the People’s Republic of China’s (PRC) claim to the SCS as its “historic waters.” The PRC continues to militarise the SCS, which has led to increasing friction between the US and China. Can geopolitical and geoeconomic issues in the SCS be resolved peacefully, or will this maritime region remain a potential flashpoint? Dr. Remy Davison addresses these questions in the context of his latest book, The New Global Politics of the Asia-Pacific: Conflict and Cooperation in the Asian Century (2017).
