Traversing The Challenges

Political, Economic and Environmental Dimensions of Maritime and Regional Security

This publication offers comprehensive analyses on the most important aspects regarding the South China Sea disputes and questions of maritime security as well as regional cooperation.

It follows the conference titled “Maritime Challenges in the Asia Pacific Moving Towards Political, Environmental, and Functional Cooperation” held in November 2016 in Manila, jointly organized by the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung Philippines Office, the AIM Rizalino S. Navarro Policy Center for Competitiveness, the Foreign Service Institute of the Philippines and Ruhr-Universität Bochum. The participants from Europe and Asia hope to contribute to a fruitful and sustainable approach to intra- and interregional cooperation as well as conflict resolution in the South China Sea and East Asia.
