2008 (English)Conference paper (Other academic)
The main aim of this paper is to analyse Vietnam’s contribution to regional peace and stability through an examination of its policies to resolve border disputes by peaceful means. The paper reviews the progress in resolving border with a focus on developments since the 1990s. It also addresses the challenges posed by the remaining unsettled disputes. The processes leading to the existing agreements are assessed and the implication of the overall process and progress on regional peace and security is discussed. A core aspect of the regional dimension is an assessment of if and how Vietnam has contributed to strengthen the conflict management approach of the Association of South-East Nations (ASEAN).
