Description

 

Prof. Nguyen Manh Hung, Visiting Senior Fellow, ISEAS - Yusof Ishak Institute, Singapore

Disputes in the South China Sea involve two set of islands. In the Paracel Islands, it is the dispute between Vietnam and China. The Spratly Islands have six claimants: Brunei, China, Malaysia, the Philippines, Taiwan, and Vietnam. While conflict in the Paracel Islands is a bilateral issue, conflict in the Spratly Islands is a regional issue. However, because the South China Sea covers a vast expanse of water through which over 5 billion worth of commercial trade pass, conflict in the South China Sea can have a serious consequence for peace and security in one of the most strategically important area of the world it is, therefore, also an international issue drawing in the involvement of the major powers of the world.

This paper is designed to: 1) present a brief background to the South China Sea conflict; 2) examine the actions and interactions among claimants; 3) describe the reasons for and consequences of major powers interactions in a complex context combining the normal competition for power and influence between major powers and the global transitional process between a rising power and a status quo power; 4) review current proposals to keep the disputes under control; and 5) analyse the prospects of successful management of the conflict
