GAC Discussion Series: Conflict in the South China Sea, Thurs., April 27

Thurs., April 27, 6:30-8:30 p.m., Room 1010(m) Boardroom

*This is part of the Great Discussion series, which requires registration. See details below.

The South China Sea is a locus of competing territorial claims, and China its most vocal claimant. Beijing’s interest has intensified disputes with other countries in the region in recent years, especially since China has increased its naval presence. Despite rising international pressure, including an unfavorable ruling by the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea, China staunchly defends its policies in the region. Preventing tensions from boiling over is a matter of careful diplomacy.

6:30 – Video background report (compliments printed briefing paper provided in advance)*
7:00 – Remarks by guest
7:30 – group discussion
