In the coming weeks, an international tribunal is set to pass a final ruling on an arbitration case unilaterally initiated by the Philippines on the South China Sea dispute. The Chinese government has reiterated its non-acceptance and non-participation stance in the case. As the new Philippine President takes office, will tensions be lessened? What can we expect from China if the ruling is in favor of the Philippines? And will China engage in further talks with Vietnam over similar territorial issues? Join us for a discussion with Mr. Ye Hailin, researcher of the National Institute of International Strategy at CASS; in Manila, Richard Heydarian, Political Science Professor at De La Salle University in Manila and the author of Asia’s New Battlefield: US, China, and the Struggle for Western Pacific; and in Tokyo, Lim Tai Wei, Adjunct Research Fellow at the National University of Singapore.
