Dispute Settlement and Conflict Management in the South China Sea – Assessing Progress and Challenges
2010 (English)Conference paper (Other academic)
The paper assesses the progress made in dispute settlement and conflict management in the South China Sea. The challenges that persist in the South China Sea area are also analysed in the paper. The progress made is outlined through an overview of settled and managed territorial disputes in the South China Sea and adjacent areas, i.e. the Gulf of Thailand and the Gulf of Tonkin. This is followed by an analysis of the settlement and management approaches. The challenge of the un-settled disputes is analysed and assessed by highlighting both the nature of the disputes and the efforts in managing them. The paper is concluded by a broader assessment of progress made and remaining challenges in the South China Sea from the perspectives of dispute settlement and conflict management.
