NameThe Role of International Law in the South China Sea Disputes


Prof. Alex Oude Elferink, Director of Netherlands Institute for the Law of the Sea, Utrecht University, The Netherlands

International law figures prominently in any discussion concerning the South China Sea disputes. International law provides a tool for determining which of the claimant States has sovereignty over the disputed islands and contains rules for determining the maritime entitlements of the disputed islands and thee delimitation of these entitlements with those of the coasts surrounding the South China Sea. Most of the analysis in relation to international law focusses on determining the content of the applicable law and how it should be applied in the context of the South China Sea. The presentation instead proposes to focus on how international law is argued by the parties to the South China Sea disputes. In this connection particular attention will be paid to the pending arbitration under the United Nations Convention on the law of the sea between the Philippines and China.
