Abstract

Traditional concerns with sovereignty have been contested in the South China Sea for decades. There are continuing clashes over the use of EEZ and disputes concerning overlapping historical and current claims of ownership. Tensions continue to escalate as fishermen and resource vessels are harassed as states scramble for the resources within the EEZ and continental shelf adjacent to the contested islands. This paper argues that difficulties in ascertaining sovereignty should not be a barrier to the creation of cooperative mechanisms to ensure that the human security of fishermen in the South China Sea is not violated.

摘要:在南中国海,传统的主权问题斗争已经持续了数十年。当前,围绕专属经济区、过去和现在的争议领土主张冲突仍在不断发生。对专属经济区内、以及主权归属存在争议岛屿相邻的大陆架蕴藏的资源,各国一哄而上,激烈争夺,并骚扰他国渔民和开采资源的船只,造成紧张局势不断升级。本文认为,确定主权上存在困难不应妨碍建立合作机制,以确保在南中国海作业渔民的人身安全不受侵犯。

Publication Details

Author information: Shelley Parkinson is a PhD candidate at Bond University in Australia. She is presently researching non-traditional threats to security, in particular human security, and how states and individuals may be affected when human security considerations are lacking in state security dialogues. It is her contention that providing human security, particularly to those most vulnerable, should be an essential component of broader national security concerns. Her current research interests encompass the human security of individuals in situations of highly infectious disease and how people movement, including illicit trafficking, across porous borders facilitates the spread of these infections to proximate nation states.
