""The Socialist Republic of Vietnam and the Law of the Sea"" analyzes Vietnam's law of the sea policies in relation to the country's overall foreign policy goals and its position at the centre of the South China Sea geostrategic region. Vietnam's claims in zones of maritime jurisdiction and regulation of maritime activities are examined in the context of the 1982 UN Convention on the Law of the Sea and of Vietnam's security interests, economic development and regional leadership goals. Its maritime boundary disputes with its Southeast Asian neighbours and China are examined and their impact on regional stability assessed.;This is a comprehensive study that traces the evolution of Vietnamese policy and participation in law of the sea development from the 1958 First UN Conference on the Law of the Sea to the present. The book provides the background understanding of Vietnam's current maritime relations and of the challenge to incorporate Vietnam into a stable regional order. The book should be of particular value to law of the sea specialists, Southeast Asia area specialists and those interested in the development of Vietnam's hydrocarbon and fishery resources.
