South China Sea Conflict and the Influence of China in Southeast Asia

Global Conversations

Wednesday, February 12, 2020 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

The disputes in the South China Sea among several Southeast Asian states and China have remained unresolved for decades. With China's emergence as a regional and global power, the area has turned into a flashpoint in China-U.S. relations.

Humphrey Fellows Camille Elemia, a multimedia reporter from the Philippines, Ha Tran, a broadcast journalist from Vietnam, and Aung Naing Soe, a multimedia journalist from Myanmar, will look into the maritime dispute, China's increasing militarization in the contested waters and its economic expansion in the region.
