"The South China Sea and Re-Assessing Regional Order in Asia"
September 7-8, 2012, 10 am to 5 pm
University of California, Berkeley
Institute of East Asian Studies Conference Room
2223 Fulton Street, Berkeley, CA
The seas of East and Southeast Asia have become a flashpoint in international relations among Asian nations. With China's growing political influence, its claims to territory, resources, and access have generated not only varying degrees of resistance and conflict, but a renegotiating of relations across the region and internationally. Most recently, the South China Sea has emerged as the site of contested space. With participants from the fields of international relations, political science, history, and law, this two-day conference explores the historical background of the South China Sea crisis; the legal issues involved, including interpreting the Law of the Sea in the current context; the South China Sea not only as a source of energy and food but in terms of strategic significance; the further complications posed by the uneasy thaw in relations between China and Taiwan; the play not only of government action but of public response; and finally what the current maneuvering signals for the future of Asia.
