    Alexander Neill: Does China's 'tiger hunt' end with Zhou?

    12 June 2015.  By Alexander Neill, Shangri-La Dialogue Senior Fellow for Asia-Pacific Security On 11 June the First Intermediate People’s Court of Tianjin posted a five-paragraph statement on its website, revealing the sentencing of former politburo standing-committee member Zhou Yongkang to life imprisonment. With deliberate mundanity, the line announcing Zhou’s sentencing tops a list of drab news bulletins detailing the daily business of the court. Thus ends the story of one of the most...

    Herve Lemahieu: Aung San Suu Kyi and Xi Jinping's historic meeting

    12 June 2015.  It’s striking to see the democracy icon and Burmese opposition leader with China’s Communist leader. In fact, however, this is just a continuation of the way China and Myanmar have long done business.

    Colonel Lu Yin: It’s Time to ‘Get the Gloves Back On’

    09 June 2015.  By Colonel Lu Yin, Associate Researcher, Institute of Strategic Studies, National Defense University, China The 14-year-old Shangri-La Dialogue again proved itself to be a high-end multilateral security dialogue platform, as shown by the impressive attendance of 493 delegates from 38 countries, as well as the presence of international organisations and the involvement of nearly 5,000 people. The Shangri-La Dialogue began in the year 2002, coinciding with the rise of multilateral engagement in the...

    09 June 2015.  By Alexander Neill, Shangri-La Dialogue Senior Fellow for Asia-Pacific Security Recently, an essay published in the Wall Street Journal written by David Shambaugh, professor of George Washington University, has created reverberations within the China-watching community. Citing five indicators of current political and socio-economic decline in China, Shambaugh has concluded that the rule of the Communist Party of China (CPC) is nearing conclusion and China's political future is at crossroads. His conclusions have...

    Dana H. Allin: America in the Asia-Pacific – Are we there yet?

    03 June 2015.  When does the United States finish ‘rebalancing’ its strategic focus towards the Asia-Pacific and decide that it is adequately ‘balanced’? The question is about more than wordplay, as I suggested to a Pentagon official at the IISS Shangri-La Dialogue in Singapore on Saturday. We were speaking after the new US defense secretary, Ashton Carter, had delivered a careful and generally well-received speech that morning. The rebalancing rhetoric, first invoked by Secretary...

    William Choong: The mother of all security dialogues still going strong

    03 June 2015.  By William Choong, Shangri-La Dialogue Senior Fellow for Asia-Pacific Security With China's controversial reclamation in the South China Sea, many participants had expected this year's Shangri-La Dialogue to be a boxing ring, a reprise of last year, when China and the United States duelled sharply in the open. In the end, both sides seemed to be part of a diplomatic gavotte. While they raised stern questions, the delivery was more deliberate and...
