South China Sea Arbitration

On 12 July, the Permanent Court of Arbitration handed down its judgment in the arbitration case between the Philippines and China concerning the South China Sea. Dr. Joris Larik, Senior Researcher at The Hague Institute, spoke to various news outlets about the legal ramifications of the decision and what will happen next. Larik was featured in de Volkskrant, Trouw, Radio Romania, L’Obs, as well as Gulf News, The Inquirer, Straits Times and Le Point.

“The Court has made it clear that the South China Sea must be shared and does not belong exclusively to one country.”
