Conclusion

Harmony from Disunity: Core Issues and Opportunities in the South China Sea
  • Andrew Billo

Abstract

The year 2013 ended with increased strain in China’s relations with its neighbours, largely owed to territorial spats over the South China and East Sea areas. In particular, China’s pronouncement of a new Air Defence Identification Zone (ADIZ) above the East Sea area in December 2013 raised the ire of its neighbours Korea, Japan, and Taiwan.
