Vietnam: Upping the Stakes in the South China Sea
ISDP POLICY BRIEF, No. 72, June 22 2011. Electronic Paper Link

Abstract:
Recent controversies between Hanoi and Beijing in relation to the South China Sea suggest that tensions in the region are rising. Vietnam is displaying a new resolve in relation to Beijing. This indicates that China’s growing economic power is a concern for the Southeast Asian capitals, and that Hanoi is attempting to take the lead among ASEAN states in challenging Beijing in relation to the South China Sea. Development of the dispute is partly linked to the position of the U.S., who promises to remain a regional power but is unlikely to want to clash with China over the South China Sea.

Keywords:
Vietnam, South China Sea, Regional Cooperation, China, Developing Countries, Foreign Policy, Military and Security Issues, Regional Power
