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 politics 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.
