The Post-Arbitration South China Sea Disputes
CPIA Roundtable with Prof. Nancy Wei
In July 2016, the Permanent Court of Arbitration nullified China’s South China Sea claims, but the dispute is far from being over.
Beijing and Taipei both rejected the ruling, and Philippine’s new President Duterte has shocked many by agreeing to shelve the dispute with Beijing.
How do the new developments affect Washington’s South China Sea strategy?

Dr. Pérez obtained his B.Sc. in Biology, with a minor in Chemistry, from the University of Bridgeport in 2010 and then went on to obtain his Ph. D. in Biochemistry, Microbiology and Molecular Biology at The Pennsylvania State University. Dr. Pérez is passionate about science outreach and communication and has participated in numerous programs, including the ConnCAP Pre-Engineering program and the NSF GK-12 fellowship. Currently, he is a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Louisville working in the Dr. John P. Wise Laboratory of Genetic and Environmental Toxicology.

What is the Summer Scholars Program?
The Summer Scholars Program was launched this year with a team of faculty who are committed to enculturate interested students into the research experience within their discipline of interest. In addition, these Summer Scholars are attending weekly workshops by UB faculty, staff, and community partners, participating in journal clubs to enhance critical thinking and analytic skills, attending Research in Progress (RIP) meetings led by UB biomedical and biobehavioral faculty, and participating in an academic and professional development series on planning a research career, graduate school admissions, and other topics of interest.
