China's Maritime Expansion: the South China Sea and Beyond

A talk by Peter Dutton, Director of the China Maritime Studies Institute of the Naval War College.

Chinese president Xi Jinping has called upon China to become a global maritime power. The epicenter of the advance is the South China Sea, but Chinese maritime interests are expanding to the Western Pacific, the Indian Ocean, and the Arctic. 

What is the security framework for China's expanding maritime interests and capabilities?

How does China's approach to its maritime claims affect the development of international law of the sea? 

As China's maritime power grows, the answers to these questions will affect all states connected to the oceans.
