Maritime Disputes in the East China Sea
Regional Security Conversation – by GCSP Alumni Community Hub Japan
The East China Sea is at the scene of escalating territorial disputes between China, Japan and other neighbouring countries.
Could they spiral into greater conflict?
The East China Sea is one of the last high-potential resource areas located near large markets. But an effective and equitable development of oil and gas in much of the area has been prevented for decades by conflicting claims to Senkaku/Diaoyu/Diayutai Islands, maritime zones and continental shelf delimitation by China, Taiwan, and Japan. Competition between China and Japan for gas resources and clashes stemming from territorial claims in the East China Sea are intensifying and hampering improved relations.
Our distinguished speaker and moderator will present a critical analysis of the global, regional, and transnational issues affecting Northeast Asia in this first edition of our “Regional Security Conversations” brought to you by GCSP Alumni Community Hubs and Community Engagement.
