This paper highlights new elements, particularly between China and Vietnam, and China and the Philippines that impact on the South China Sea disputes. And then the paper also gives some ways for resolution to the issue.


This paper attempts to give an insight to cooperation arrangements  under UNCLOS, which is compelled by the geological  and other natural  characteristics of an enclosed and semi-enclosed sea, and a scientific underpinning that dictates holistic governance and management. The canvas and brushstrokes for an UNCLOS structural/institutional design for such cooperation is also herein conceptually organized. A strategic, critical role for the Philippines is always highlighted.


This paper assesses recent developments affecting the security of the South China Sea in the first half  of  2011.The  paper  is  divided  into  five main  sections.  In  the  first  four sections the paper reviews bilateral  interaction  on  South  China  Sea  issues  between China and four claimant states – Vietnam, the Philippines and Malaysia and Taiwan. In the fifth section the paper discusses the role of Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) in promoting multilateral engagement with China over the Declaration on Conduct of Parties in the South China Sea (DOC) and a Code of Conduct for the South China Sea.


This paper attempts to analyze some of the major factors that have helped shape China’s policy on the South China Sea issue in the past decade or so. The paper will then discuss whether the context of China’s policy making, both internal and external, has significantly changed and what impacts this changed context would have on China’s future policy on the dispute.


Peter A. Dutton, An Assessment of the Effectiveness of Current Maritime Security Frameworks and Mechanisms in the South China Sea

This paper examines whether in the midst of such aggravated circumstances existing maritime security frameworks and mechanisms—two in particular, the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, and the Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the South China Sea--are sufficient to maintain regional peace and to advance regional economic development. Concluding that they are not, this paper will also make some suggestions for improvements in order to build confidence and make progress toward lasting stability.
