    Sarah Raine: Tribunal ruling offers opportunity for negotiation, not confrontation over the South China Sea

    18 July 2016.  The recent judgment of an arbitral tribunal will have implications well beyond the South China Sea.

    06 July 2016. 

    Mozambique, long favoured by Western donors, to their disapproval has recently shown signs of corruption, instability and poor governance and looked to China for help that may not be forthcoming.

    14 June 2016.  By William Choong and Alexander Neill, Shangri-La Dialogue Senior Fellows for Asia-Pacific Security For a forum frequently described as a defence ministers’ talk shop or a “media feast”, the Shangri-La ­Dialogue can boast num­erous achievements in its 15th year. As the latest sign of international pushback against China’s assertive activities in the South China Sea, France announced it would urge European Union states to coordinate “regular and visible” naval patrols in the disputed area...
