The Sino-Vietnamese Approach to Managing Border Disputes and the South China Sea Situation
2012 (English)Conference paper (Other academic)
The paper examines the Sino-Vietnamese approach to managing their border disputes and in particular the approach in relation to the South China Sea issues. The paper provides an overview on how China and Vietnam manage their border disputes in the period since full normalisation of their relations. The overview includes both progress made in terms of conflict management and challenges faced in terms of tension. In relation to the South China Sea the Sino-Vietnamese approach highlights how the two countries deal with their differences and manage them. This is followed by a discussion relating to two factors: first, the relevance and the possible implications of the Sino-Vietnamese experience; and second, the lessons drawn from it on the broader situation in the South China Sea. The paper is concluded by a summary of the main findings.
