The South China Sea Conflict after the Arbitration of July 12, 2016: Analyses and Perspectives(WiSe 17/18)
The paper goes through legal aspects of Sino-Vietnamese relations in the South China Sea. It begins by comparing their respective claims to islands and maritime zones, and how their attitudes to and interpretations of the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea have developed since it was negotiated during 1973-82. Then the paper looks at how the two states used the Convention when negotiating their Gulf of Tonkin agreement in 2000, and how they have cooperated in the Tonkin Gulf since the agreement was signed. The paper then goes into the escalating dispute between China and Vietnam over the extension of each country’s continental shelf after the deadline for submitting calculations to the UN in May 2009. The paper looks into disputes over fisheries, oil exploration and land reclamation activities in areas under legitimate and illegitimate dispute and the respective reactions of Beijing and Hanoi to the Arbitral Tribunal’s award in the Philippines versus China case in 2016, before concluding with a discussion of possible venues of conflict resolution, grounded in international law.
