Description

Boundary disputes in the South China Sea have been a long-standing threat to peace and security in East and Southeast Asia. Without immediate definition of agreed boundaries, provisional arrangements to develop resources in the disputed area have become the encouraged and effective solution. Therefore, joint development between various countries has been developed as an ad-hoc arrangement to achieve a win-win situation.

Incorporating insights from ten authors from six countries (Brunei, China, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines and Vietnam), this book provides a comprehensive analysis of the incentives and policies to joint development in the South China Sea disputes while the authors discuss the bottlenecks and proposed policy suggestions.

The authors show that this process can demystify doubts over joint development in the South China Sea disputes, and shed light on creative ways to promote cooperation. The book is a key reference for student and scholars in politics and international relations, Asian Studies and maritime law.
