Islands, sea, and imaginary borders: the South China Sea is one of the most contested bodies of water in the world. Numerous nations lay claim to portions of this potentially resource-abundant domain. The dispute garnered international attention, even leading to the recent prohibition of the ‘Barbie’ movie in Vietnam due to a scene featuring the contentious “nine-dash-line.”
In this second instalment of LAC’s Asia Academy, we will delve into diverse viewpoints regarding the South China Sea dispute. We’ll explore the perspectives of three countries as told by NOS correspondents: Sjoerd den Daas (reporting on China), Anoma van der Veere (focusing on Japan), and Mustafa Marghadi (covering Indonesia). What are the unique experiences and viewpoints of these correspondents from the countries they report from? Discover how the respective nations perceive this complex situation. Join us on September 25th at 16:00 for an enlightening exploration of the South China Sea dispute.
