China, Philippines, Africa and Dispute Settlement

The Philippines-based Center for International Relations and Strategic Studies published in June 2016 a study titled "China Could and Should Learn a Lesson or Two from Africa in the Area of Peaceful Dispute Settlement" by Alfredo C. Robles, Jr., former professor at De La Salle University in Manila.

The author notes that China is seeking African support for its South China Sea dispute with the Philippines and suggests China would be better advised to follow the lead of many African countries that have submited their disputes for settlement to the International Court of Justice.
