Failing or Incomplete? Grading the South China Sea Arbitration



On July 12, 2016, an arbitral tribunal at the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague issued its ruling in Manila’s case against Beijing’s claims in the South China Sea. Convened under the compulsory dispute settlement provisions of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), the tribunal’s five arbitrators ruled overwhelmingly in the Philippines’ favor.  Beijing refused to participate in the arbitration and rejected the outcome. Meanwhile, the newly-inaugurated president of the Philippines, Rodrigo Duterte, downplayed the victory in the hopes of coaxing China toward a more conciliatory policy and, as a result, international pressure on China to comply with the award has evaporated.

Friday, July 05, 2019, 15:08 GMT+7

One of the DK1 rigs off Vietnam’s Truong Sa (Spratly) archipelago in the East Vietnam Sea is being installed in this file photo.

Vietnam launched an unprecedented project 30 years ago to plant about two dozen steel structures the Vietnamese call “ocean fortresses” in the East Vietnam Sea that serve as service stations for Vietnamese naval soldiers who exercise the country’s sovereignty at sea.

The DK1 platforms, formally the “economic, scientific and technological service stations,” were established under an executive order issued on July 5, 1989 by Do Muoi, then-sitting Chairman of the Council of Ministers, the country’s premier.
