About This Book

China's engagement with ASEAN over the South China Sea exhibits a dynamic continuum with two constants: (1) Dismissal of any legally binding instrument that would constrain China's freedom of action; and (2) Persistent territorialization of the SCS despite Beijing's simultaneous diplomatic engagement with ASEAN. The continuity is juxtaposed with elements of change in China's engagement with ASEAN, as afforded by the former's growing power and influence. This metamorphosis is manifested in China's efforts to undermine ASEAN unity, robustly assert its claims in the SCS, and use economic statecraft towards ASEAN member states in return for their acquiescence.
