ISIS International Affairs Forum on "The Strategic Dimensions of the Global Seaborne Navigation and International Trade of the South China Sea"

By

Dr Rawindaran Nair
Director, Lloyd’s Maritime Academy, United Kingdom
and Visiting Fellow, ISIS Malaysia

Overview

Recent developments arising from the Award of the Arbitral Tribunal, constituted under a panel of the Permanent Court of Arbitration on the dispute in the South China Sea, have raised concerns on the dimensions of global seaborne trade and navigation in a strategic sea lane of the world. The dispute in the South China Sea region, linking another major artery, the Strait of Malacca, could potentially influence seaborne trades and navigation of ships that transit these routes. This presentation explores the dimensions of concern, through the model of risks and uncertainty, on the emergence of network dynamics on the evolution of seaborne trade and shipping, with particular impact on the economies of South East Asia.
