Shifting waters: China's new passive assertiveness in Asian maritime security

Ashley Townshend, Rory Medcalf

    Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report

    Abstract

    In this Report, Ashley Townshend and Lowy Institute Nonresident Fellow Professor Rory Medcalf examine China's evolving maritime security conduct. They argue that China's less confrontational but more strategically assertive behaviour has paradoxical implications for regional security, lowering the risks of unintended clashes but making it harder to prevent China from consolidating a new maritime status quo.
