Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter presents an overview of the book, which provides a precious chance to take legal perspectives of China's territorial and boundary disputes against the new background of China's increasingly integrating itself into global economic, political and legal systems. Opportunities for constructing a new framework of dispute settlement are reflected in some positive changes that have taken place in China's negotiating strategy. The new framework pursued by the book is designed as a three-phase process: two diplomatic and one judicial or quasi-judicial. The first phase consists of negotiations and consultations. In this phase, the parties are supposed to try to settle their dispute through negotiations and consultations. If the parties fail to reach a settlement through negotiations, they need to move to the second phase, that is to say, they need to make some new arrangements.

Keywords: China's territorial and boundary disputes; consultations; legal perspectives; negotiations
