    The Association of Southeast Asian Nations’ (ASEAN) Conflict Management Approach Revisited: Will the Charter Reinforce ASEAN’s Role?2009Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The paper assesses the role played by ASEAN in the management and resolution of disputes between its member-states in the Southeast Asian region. The ASEAN approach to conflict management and the context in which it has developed is presented. The achievements and challenges that ASEAN has faced and is still facing in the field of conflict management are identified. ASEAN’s contribution to conflict management in the Southeast Asian region is recognised although the nature of the contribution and the role played by the Association is debated. ASEAN’s model and approach to conflict and dispute management and the possible impact of the approach on the conflict situation in the Southeast Asian region are examined from three main dimensions: the core elements of the approach, the role played by the Association in terms of conflict management, and the possible impact of the ASEAN approach in managing disputes among its member-states. The possible impact of recent developments within ASEAN – the ASEAN Charter in particular – is analysed in assessing the role that the Association can play in promoting conflict management.

    The “Boatpeople” Crisis of 1978-1979 Examined Through the Ethnic Chinese Dimension2009Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines the “Boatpeople” crisis of 1978-1979, i.e. the large-scale exodus of people from Vietnam, through the ethnic Chinese dimension. The importance of this dimension can clearly be seen from the fact that some 60-70 per cent of the arrivals by boat from Vietnam to Hong Kong and to neighbouring countries during 1978-1979 were ethnic Chinese, an ethnic group that made up about 2.5 per cent of the total Vietnamese population. The context in which the large-scale exodus took place is analysed and the factors that could help understand why the ethnic Chinese left Vietnam in such large numbers are identified. This contributes to a better understanding of the broader Boatpeople crisis as a whole and more specifically to the Hong Kong experience. It is also of relevance in order to better understand the diversities within the Vietnamese Diaspora that was formed as a result of large-scale exodus from Vietnam in the late 1970s, i.e. the Boatpeople crisis.

    The China-Vietnam Relationship – An Update2009Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The main aim of this paper is to outline and assess the current state of the China-Vietnam relationship. The paper takes as it starting point the expanding relationship since the full normalisation in 1991. The paper identifies major issues in the relationship and how they have been handled in the post-1991 period. The analysis of major issues is divided into existing and potential challenges to the relationship.  In the analysis of existing challenges the focus is on the remaining unsettled border issues in the South China Sea. In the identification and assessment of potential challenges the risks with economic competition and uneven trade relations and the risks associated with developments affecting shared rivers are assessed.

    The Dispute Management Approach of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN): What Relevance for the South China Sea Situation?2010Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this paper is to asses the possible relevance of the dispute management approach of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) for the South China Sea situation. This is done by analysing the intra-ASEAN dimension as well as the foreign relations dimension from an ASEAN perspective. The first dimension is addressed by assessing the impact of the South China Sea situation on relations between the ASEAN members. Emphasis is put on the relevance of the dispute management approach of ASEAN. The foreign relations dimension focuses on the formulation of ASEAN’s common policy on the South China Sea, which relates to the intra-ASEAN dimension, and to ASEAN’s dialogue with China relating to the South China Sea as this dialogue is vital for managing the overall situation in the area as displayed by the ‘2002 Declaration on the Conduct of the Parties’. The paper is concluded by an assessment the relevance of ASEAN’s dispute management approach in the context of the South China Sea situation.

    The Ethnic Chinese in Vietnam Since 1975 – From Exodus to Reintegration2009Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this paper is to study the developments relating to the ethnic Chinese in Vietnam since 1975. The paper takes at its starting point the patterns of demographic change that have taken place since the mid-1970s and the considerable decline in the number of ethnic Chinese in Vietnam during that period. The late 1970s was characterised by large-scale migration of ethnic Chinese from Vietnam. The policies of socialist transformation were a major factor in the exodus from the southern part of Vietnam in 1978 and 1979, while in the northern part deteriorating relations between Vietnam and China triggered an exodus in 1978. Changes in the policies of the Vietnamese authorities towards the remaining ethnic Chinese caused another large-scale outward movement in 1979. Since 1979 the ethnic Chinese population has continued to diminish as displayed by the official censuses of 1989 and 1999 but at a considerably lower pace then in the late 1970s. The liberalisation of the Vietnamese economy and the broader process of renovation coupled with a political process of re-integration of the ethnic Chinese by both the Vietnamese government and the ruling Communist Party of Vietnam have brought about better conditions for the ethnic Chinese population in the country.

    The Sino-Vietnamese Approach to Managing Border Disputes and the South China Sea Situation2012Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The proposed paper will examine the Sino-Vietnamese approach to managing their border disputes and in particular the approach in relation to the South China Sea issues. The paper will first provide an overview on how China and Vietnam manage their border disputes in the period since full normalisation of their relations. The overview will include 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 will highlight how the two countries deal with their differences and manage them. This will be 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 will be concluded by a summary of the main findings.

    The State of Peace and Conflict Studies in Asia2011Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of the paper is to offer a reflective overview of the state of Peace and Conflict Studies in Asia. Given the complexity and the wide range of topics covered by the theme of the paper is general rather then specific in its approach. One key dimension is the challenges and opportunities offered by the broad discipline of Peace and Conflict Studies and its relationship with more established disciplines within the Social Sciences. The possible role of scholarly networks is discussed with a focus on the Southeast Asian Conflict Studies Network and the Asian Political and International Studies Association.

    Abstract [en]

    This study investigates how the United Nations (UN) has reacted to foreign military interventions. The term foreign military intervention is defined and criteria for the selection of cases are formulated, resulting in the selection of seven foreign military interventions: Vietnam in Kampuchea, Tanzania in Uganda, France in the Central African Empire (CAE), the USSR in Afghanistan, the USA and several Caribbean states in Grenada, the USA in Panama, and Iraq in Kuwait. The relevant provisions of the Charter of the UN are presented and interpretations of Article 2(4) and Article 51 are made for the purpose of this study. This is followed by an examination of the UN reactions to the seven cases through the Security Council's and the General Assembly's responses to the interventions. The reactions are categorized as active (Kuwait), extensive (Kampuchea and Afghanistan), single (Grenada and Panama), and no reaction (Uganda and the CAE). The next step of the analysis is the formulation of a Hypothesis. This is done from a legal and normative approach to explaining the UN reactions. The Hypothesis is operationalized and tested through the formulation of two specifications. The result of this testing is that the Hypothesis has been found untenable. This indicates that the Charter is not the sole factor guiding and generating the UN reactions to foreign military interventions. The study also shows that there is a basis for arguing that the UN reactions to the seven cases were not consistent.

    Abstract [en]

    The study explores the multifaceted challenges to human security in Vietnam. It takes as its starting point the end of the Second Indochina Conflict in 1975 he study focuses on how Vietnam has responded to the broader human security challenges in the post-1975 period and how successful it has been at addressing such challenges. The study highlights one of the neglected human security tragedies in Vietnam–namely, the mass-exodus of ethnic Chinese in the late 1970s and its enduring legacy. The study also looks at the new challenges to human security that have emerged in Vietnam following the end of regional conflicts, the end of isolation by leading Western powers, and the deepening of renovation and reform, i.e. the period since the early 1990s.

    Dispute Settlement in Practice – Assessing Progress and Challenges in the South China Sea Region2012Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The paper examines dispute settlement in practice through an overview of developments in the South China Sea region. It first studies dispute settlement arrangements from the international legal perspectives by examining the Charter of the United Nations and the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. As a case study, the South China Sea region is assessed in regard to progress made and challenges persisted in dispute settlement and conflict management. The progress made is outlined through an overview of settled and managed territorial disputes in the South China Sea and adjacent area, followed by an analysis of settlement and management approaches. The challenge of the unsettled 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 the progress made in terms of dispute settlement as well as of the remaining challenges in the South China Sea region from the perspectives of dispute settlement, in light of the international legal mechanisms.

    Enhancing Maritime Peace in East Asia Through the Charter of the United Nations: Non-Use of Force and Peaceful Settlement of Dispute2012Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The paper investigates how maritime peace in East Asia can be enhanced through the Charter of the United Nations. This is done through an examination of two key norms of the Charter, the prohibition of the use of force in inter-state relations and the peaceful settlement of disputes. The empirical application of these principles and their possible impact on maritime peace in the East Asia region is studied through the foreign policy of China and through the principles governing the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). This is motivated by the fact that both China and ASEAN put strong emphasis on non-use of force in inter-state relations and peaceful settlement of inter-state disputes. The paper examines the possible impact of the policies of the major external actor, i.e. the United States of America (USA). The paper is concluded by a broader discussion on the linkage between non-use of force and peaceful settlement of disputes and the promotion of maritime peace in East Asia.

    Recent Developments in the South China Sea – Assessing the China-Vietnam and China-Philippines Relationships2012Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    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.

    This study examines recent developments in the South China Sea through a case study of the China-Vietnam relationship. The study outlines and examines how China and Vietnam deal with tensions relating to their territorial disputes in the South China Sea. It looks specifically at the tension caused by incidents in late May and early June 2011 and how the tension was brought under control by the two countries. These developments are examined in the broader context of the Sino-Vietnamese approach to managing border disputes since full normalisation of relations in late 1991. The implications and lessons drawn from the developments in May-June 2011 as well as from the broader period since late 1991 are outlined. Furthermore, the challenges for China and Vietnam to properly manage their disputes and related tension in the South China Sea are discussed.

    Abstract [en]

    This study analyzes the border disputes of Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam, respectively. Both settled and unsettled disputes are encompassed. The study outlines the settlements reached and the remaining unsettled disputes. Furthermore, the broader trends in managing the border disputes are analyzed and remaining challenges, both in implementing agreements and in managing the unsettled disputes, are addressed. So are the implications for regional conflict management. The study displays that both Laos and Vietnam have made considerable progress in both managing and settling their existing border disputes, whereas Cambodia has thus far been less successful.

    Conflict Management and Dispute Settlement in East Asia2011Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Through a multi-disciplinary approach, this volume studies the management and settlement of conflict and disputes in East Asia. Conflict and disputes exist everywhere in human society. The management and settlement of them has become an imperative. This volume is a significant contribution to a broader understanding of the complexities involved in managing and settling disputes and conflicts at regional, inter-state and intra-state levels in the East Asian region. Drawing on expertise in Peace and Conflict, International Relations, and International Law the volume presents to the reader a general picture of how conflict can be managed at the international and regional levels through various mechanisms, in particular, through prominent regional organizations such as ASEAN. It then moves on to case studies at the regional level including inter-state and intra-state conflicts and disputes. The last part of the volume highlights how states resolve their maritime disputes. This has drawn much attention from the international community due to various factors such as the increasing demand for natural resources from the oceans. These disputes disrupt the smooth development of international relations as well as trigger tensions and confrontation between states.
