              The South China Sea has long been regarded as a major source of tension and instability in East Asia. Managing the risk of possible conflict over disputed claims in the South China Sea has been a significant challenge for regional relations. This book explores international polit...ics and security in the South China Sea. It outlines the history of the South China Sea disputes, and the efforts that have been made to resolve these, assessing the broader strategic significance of the region for major geopolitical powers. In addition, new challenges have emerged of resource management, environmental protection, and most recently, of the security and safety of shipping against the threats of piracy and maritime terrorism. The book discusses the convergence of traditional and non-traditional security issues now appearing to provide a basis for co-operation in the South China Sea. It shows how the challenge of establishing co-operative relations is now being met, largely through agreement between the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and China in 2002 on the Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the South China Sea, and a range of recent measures for functional co-operation.

              As global economic power shifts towards Asia, there are increasing concerns about maritime security in the region. This applies especially to the seas of East Asia, which are rich in resources, where there are major shipping lanes, crucial to the world economy, but where there ar...e many unresolved maritime territorial disputes and where good order at sea is lacking. This book, by an established leading authority on the subject, argues that the issues need to be understood equally from legal, political and security perspectives. It takes a pessimistic view, showing how regional powers do not co-operate as well as they might, and how the interventions of external powers are often counterproductive. It puts forward suggestions as to how the situation could be improved, and concludes by discussing how the situation is likely to develop.

              Freedoms of Navigation in the Asia-Pacific Region: Strategic, Political and Legal Factors

              Freedoms of Navigation in the Asia-Pacific Region: Strategic, Political and Legal Factors (Hardback)

              The need for freedoms of navigation in regional waters is frequently mentioned in statements from regional forums, but a common understanding is lacking of what constitutes a particular freedom of navigation, or of the relevant law. This book discusses how law, politics and strat...egy intersect to provide different perspectives of freedoms on navigation in the Asia-Pacific region. These freedoms are very important in this distinctively maritime region, but problems arise over interpreting the navigational regimes under the law of the sea, especially with regard to the rights of foreign warships to transit another country's territorial sea without prior notification or authorisation of the coastal state, and with determining the availability of high seas freedoms of navigation and overflight in an exclusive economic zone. The book explores these issues, referring in particular to the position of the main protagonists on these issues in Asian waters - the United States and China - with their strongly opposing views. The book concludes with a discussion of the prospects for either resolving these different perspectives or for developing confidence-building measures that would reduce the risks of maritime incidents. Providing a comprehensive yet concise overview of the various different factors affecting freedom of navigation, this book will be a valuable resource for those working or studying in the fields of international relations, maritime security and the law of the sea.
