The South China Sea has long been an area of contention, but increased tensions in recent years over issues of territory have placed these waters in the global spotlight. Join WorldBoston and the Rosenberg Institute at Suffolk University as we examine China’s geopolitical strategy in the South Pacific. Professor Peter Dutton, an expert on strategic studies, Chinese sovereignty, and maritime law will lead a discussion on how China’s actions in this potential flashpoint could impact the region for years to come.
