Mr. Abd Rahim Hussin, Former Undersecretary, National Security Council, Prime Minister’s Department, Malaysia; Adjunct Associate Professor, University New South Wales (UNSW)

Major incidents such in as the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH 370 in April 2014, also gave rise to the need of shared responsibility for international search and rescue operations which cover a very wide area. Issues pertaining to search and rescue are also hampered by regional tensions and mistrust whereby some states are not willing to share information thus, resulting in delays. Finally, the paper assess the extent to which International obligations have been upheld by parties which ratify the conventions. A model regional cooperation on search and rescue i.e the Artic Council are briefly taken note to see its applicability   for the region in the context of strengthening search and rescue in this part of the world.

The South China Sea has strategic importance to not only countries surrounding the sea but also other countries in the world. Because of its important geo-political location, the South China Sea has became one of the hottest spots in the world with conflicting claims over land features and maritime spaces. Most of the nations would like to maximize their maritime claims from a territory, it leads to the fact that there exist the conflicting maritime claims. In the South China Sea, the claims of  coastal states overlap with that of each other and therefore, the areas formed by these claims need to be delimited or agreed for joint development. However, the claims must based on the principle “the land dominates the sea” and must be mutually accepted by the other states as the legally reasonable claims. This article will review current issues of the delimitation and joint development in the South China Sea.

With the conclusion of oral arguments by the Philippines during the jurisdictional phase of the Annex VII arbitration it initiated against China, the arbitral tribunal announced that it will endeavor to make a decision on the issues of jurisdiction and admissibility before the end of 2015. This paper will attempt to anticipate the range of possible decisions that the tribunal might make in order to identify the potential scenarios and directions that the SCS disputes will take in the immediate future, and determine options that the claimant countries may have in response to the situation.
