The “International Conference on East Sea Disputes” is a two-day international conference on an issue of great regional and international importance at the main campus of Ton Duc Thang University, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, July 25-26, 2014
The East Sea is the world’s second busiest sea-lane through which more than half of the world’s super tankers and $5.3 trillion in annual trade pass. In recent years, conflict over maritime boundaries and attempts to unilaterally impose territorial claims have caused tension, threatened regional peace, maritime security and freedom of navigation, and affected the livelihood of thousands of fishermen in their traditional fishing area. Failure to reduce tension and manage conflict may lead to skirmishes and wars. It is important to find ways to peacefully manage conflict and resolve disputes based on international law and diplomacy. The focus of the conference is not on the conflict itself, but on how to manage conflict and resolve disputes without the use of force or threat of use of force, and protect the right of fishermen to continue fishing in their traditional fishing area.
The proceedings include selected and unedited papers of scholars and experts dealing with different aspects of the conference’s focus. This collection of papers provides an easy reference for participants to follow and participate in the discussions at the conference. It is hope that, in its rough draft, it could also be useful to those whose are interested in the East Sea disputes.
A collection of papers of the international conference “Security and Cooperation in the South China Sea” incorporates the presentations of its participants – the most prominent and authoritative world-class specialists from the United States, Japan, India, Australia, the European Union and Russia who have long been studying the problems of this region. They examine the situation in Southeast Asia and the South China Sea from variousstandpoints, analyse the history of the conflict, its juridical and political aspects, and the involvement of great powers therein. The common element that unites the texts offered to the reader is the authors’ desire to find the mostoptimal ways to resolve the dangerous standoff, to make available for the governments of the countries of the region a sort of a “roadmap” to a world of stability and cooperation.
In recent years, relations between Russia and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) have seen positive trends, but no qualitative shift to a new level of cooperation. Nevertheless, Moscow’s increasing economic and diplomatic reorientation towards Asia, coupled with a confluence between their priorities in regional politics and security, have the potential to make Russia–ASEAN cooperation more versatile and multidimensional.
This chapter is devoted to ASEAN’s Leading Role in East Asian Multilateral Dialogue on Security Matters of Asia-Pacific region.
For the first time since World War II, the U.S. seem to lose leadership at the multilateral trade talks shifting accents to bilateral and regional trade cooperation. The main reason for the shift is a deadlock at the WTO Doha-round negotiations where the U.S. face opposition of the steadily growing economies of India, China and Brazil.
