Great power rivalry has changed the “seascape” of maritime order in Southeast Asia. Until quite recently, China and the Southeast Asian claimant states are the only major players in conflict over the South China Sea. The great power competition spearheaded by the trade war and hegemonic struggle over technological supremacy between Washington and Beijing have apparently added another layer in the maritime disputes in the region, putting much stress on role of international law and various regional multilateral institutions. This webinar looks to share preliminary findings of a research project examining the impact of great power rivalry on the rules-based order in Southeast Asia. This project is part of the Policy Research Network on Contemporary Southeast Asia (PRN-SEA) initiated by GRIPS and co-organised with RSIS and CSIS Indonesia.
