Chapter Summary

Much of East Asia is essentially maritime encompassing a maze of peninsulas, disputed islands, archipelagos, strategic straits and sea lanes. According to Article 123 of the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (LOS Convention) their environment and living resources should be co-managed cooperatively by the littoral States. For many years East Asian nations attempted to avoid escalating tension with their neighbours by either refraining from extending their maritime jurisdiction or foregoing provocative activities in maritime frontier areas. Cooperation in the maritime sphere can be a means of building confidence, reducing tension and eliminating points of conflict, and it can have spillover effects in other fields. But confrontation and conflict in the maritime sphere can have the opposite effect. In assessing the current situation, this chapter provides an update on the significant progress and the problems in building multilateral maritime regimes in East Asia.

Keywords: East Asia; LOS Convention; maritime cooperation; multilateral maritime regimes
