The Diplomat has published Kerry Lynn Nankivell’s latest article “South China Sea: Fishing in Troubled Waters.”    Nankivell discusses the concept of a U.S.-Philippines fisheries pact as a counter to China’s aggression in the South China Sea.  Despite a ruling by the Permanent Court of Arbitration denying China’s claim to sovereignty over much of the region, that nation continues to expand its military and commercial exploitation of islands and resources in contested waters.  Nankivell writes that a U.S.-Philippines partnership to enforce fishing rights in the Philippines’ Exclusive Economic Zone could offer a “natural, non-escalatory” means to ensure rule of law in Southeast Asian waters.

The views in the article are the author’s own and don’t necessarily reflect those of the U.S. government, the Department of Defense, or the Asia-Pacific Center.
