Long-standing disputes over maritime jurisdictional claims in the East China Sea, South China Sea, and Gulf of Thailand threaten the long-term stability and prosperity of states in East and Southeast Asia. Despite numerous multilateral efforts in recent decades and international legal regimes such as the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea, tensions among claimant states and user states remain high. Resolution of these disputes has eluded the claimant states, given the complexity of the domestic political, historic, legal, economic, and strategic factors involved and the pressure to develop the estimated vast energy resources in the disputed areas.
Recognizing the complexities of the disputes and the need for continued peace and stability in these strategic waterways, NBR embarked on a three-year initiative, sponsored by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation’s Asia Security Initiative, to explore the contours of the disputes and opportunities for cooperative development of the energy resources therein.
Members of the project’s research team, led by Dr. Clive Schofield, Director of Research and QEII Research Fellow at the Australian National Centre for Ocean Resources and Security (ANCORS), will present the findings of their research.
