China’s growing assertiveness in the South China Sea: a strategic shift?
Seminar Venue: 29-106 (Hass Seminar room, entrance from Bldg 28 front)
Time: 12:10 - 13:30
Dr. Jian Zhang (UNSW Canberra)
Chair: Prof. David Lovell (UNSW Canberra)
The renewed tension between China and some other claimant states over the disputed territories in the South China Sea in recent years has triggered widespread concerns about growing Chinese assertiveness in bolstering its claims. In contrast to its relatively conciliatory approach to the South China Sea Dispute in the early to mid-2000s, Beijing has appeared to become increasingly uncompromising when handling the dispute. Does recent Chinese assertiveness represent a new shift in China’s South China Sea policy driven by the country’s rapidly growing economic and military clout? This presentation seeks to analyze the causes and nature of China’s recent actions in the South China Sea and the implications for regional security.
