NameThe South China Sea Disputes: The Overall Situation


Prof. Herman Joseph S. Kraft, Associate Dean for Administration and External Affairs, College of Social Sciences and Philosophy, Philippines

The situation in the South China Sea has always been described as a potential hotspot since the disputes between multiple claimants to the land features and the surrounding water therein intensified in the late 1980s. This has perhaps never truer in the last ten years when the status quo of a “live and let live” situation was largely shaken by Chinese actions undertaken in response to what the Chinese government claimed were violations by other claimant states of that “live and let live” regime based on the ASEAN-brokered Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the South China Sea (DOCS). Whether or not these Chinese actions were justified, these have turned what used to be a “potential” hotspot into a crisis-prone situation. What makes the situation more dangerous is the overarching context of the intensifying competition between China and the United States.
