Recent Developments in the South China Sea – Assessing the China-Vietnam and China-Philippines Relationships
2012 (English)Conference paper (Other academic)
The paper examines recent developments in the South China Sea through two bilateral relationships – China-Vietnam and China-Philippines – respectively. The paper first outlines recent developments in both bilateral relations relating to the South China Sea. The nature of the events causing tension is identified and the way in which the events have been managed is examined. Particular attention is devoted to the management or lack of management mechanisms in the two bilateral relationships. Possible differences between the two relationships will be explored with the aim of assessing whether relevant variations in management mechanisms can be explained by such differences. The paper is concluded by a summary of the main findings and some observations.
