Disputes and Dispute Management in the South China Sea – Achievements and Challenges
2012 (English)Conference paper (Other academic)
The paper assesses the progress made in dispute management in the South China Sea. The persisting challenges 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 proper and adjacent area, i.e. the Gulf of Thailand and the Gulf of Tonkin. This is followed by an analysis of the settlement and management approaches, including joint development arrangements. The challenges of managing the un-settled disputes are 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 developments from the perspective of dispute management.
