Description

The Strategic Studies Institute (SSI) is pleased to publish its second analysis covering one of the South China Sea disputes. This monograph examines the economic and security importance of the region to the claiming states and the violent acts and potential for instability in the region that have resulted. To better understand the positions of the parties involved, this monograph delves into the customary international law claims for sovereignty through historic and occupation doctrines, and the subsequent maritime jurisdiction claims made through the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. U.S. interests and resulting involvement are also explained to assist in understanding these positions better and to inform U.S. policymakers of actions the United States may take to promote peace and economic development in an important region. This analysis purposefully parallels an earlier SSI work by the author on the Spratly Islands which shows the similarities, differences, and complementary actions involving the two South China Sea disputes

ITEM AVAILABLE DATE 02/27/15.
