Competing maritime sovereignty claims in the East and South China Sea have the potential to spark a dangerous conflict between major powers in East Asia. Such a conflict could threaten the principles of free and fair passage that support global commerce and engagement and to which the U.S. and regional partners are deeply committed. How should the U.S., Japan and Australia work together to uphold existing international norms and laws? Please join our experts as we discuss trilateral maritime security cooperation as it is today, and how to strengthen future cooperation on this issue.
