NUPI invites to seminar: “Maritime Security in East Asia”
June 5, 2014 - 13:00-15:00
The Norwegian Institute of International Affairs, NUPI, has the pleasure of inviting you to the seminar: “Maritime Security in East Asia” with Professor Geoff Till from the Defence Studies Department at King’s College London and Dr. Sam Bateman from the Australian National Centre for Ocean Resources & Security at the University of Wollongong.
Maritime Security in East Asia is not only a regional challenge. International trade between Asia and other parts of the world depends on uninterrupted access to maritime shipping routes in East Asia. Even Norway’s economy may be influenced by an interruption of the international flow of goods or a local conflict between some of the globally economic significant states in East Asia.
Some of challenges in the East Asian region are overlapping maritime claims in international waters and different views on international governance and maritime legal affairs. Geoff Till’s lecture will cover the strategic and operational scene, including regional naval developments. Sam Bateman will address legal and political issues, including the access to the global commons, the UNCLOS debates and good order at sea initiatives.
