Senior Fellow at the Institute of Southeast Asian Studies (Singapore) Dr. Ian Storey visited the ASEAN Centre and gave a talk on the current state of the South China Sea dispute.
In his speech, Dr. Storey described the latest trends in relations between the Southeast Asian states, China and the US, all of whom have influenced the situation in the South China Sea in some way or another. He further analysed the foreign policy considerations behind the actions of countries involved in the dispute, and outlined a few scenarios that he felt could describe future developments in the South China Sea.
