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?
