Conflict in the South China Sea: An Evening Hosted by the World Affairs Council of St. Louis

Join us for a discusson on the Conflict in the South China Sea. 

The South China Sea is a locus of competing territorial claims, and China its most vocal claimant. Beijing’s interest has intensified regional disputes, especially since China has increased its naval presence. Despite rising international pressure, including an unfavorable ruling by the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea, China staunchly defends its policies in the region.
