Historic First

As part of the National Committee’s mission to promote high-level exchange and constructive dialogue on sensitive topics, the Committee and the National Institute for South China Sea Studies (NISCSS) co-sponsor a bi-annual U.S.-China Track II Dialogue on Maritime Issues & International Law – the first such ongoing dialogue of its kind. Established in October 2012, the purpose of this dialogue is to convene American and Chinese legal experts to explore the issues surrounding China’s recent maritime disputes and escalated tensions in both the South China Sea and the East China Sea in order to better understand their impact on China’s relationships with its neighbors and U.S.-China relations, while at the same time provide suggestions for improving the management and settlement of current maritime disputes.
