YPFP Brussels would like to invite you to our next event on the South China Sea and its implications for ASEAN countries on Tuesday 22 March at 19:00 CET.

You will have the chance to learn more about the South China Sea Arbitration case and discuss the political implications of China’s refusal to accept this arbitration with our speakers, Dr Frans-Paul van der Putten and Dr Alfred Gerstl. The topic will be explored in the context of the importance of the South China Sea on an international political level, China’s interest in Southeast Asia and the political implications for ASEAN countries. The conversation will also touch upon the impacts for the re-orientation of EU foreign policies in the Indo-Pacific.

  • Dr Frans-Paul van der Putten is a Senior Research Fellow at the Clingendael Institute. His area of research is the geopolitical significance of the rise of China. He is the coordinator of the Clingendael China Centre and the author of De Wederopstanding van China: Van prooi tot wereldmacht (‘The Resurrection of China: From prey to global power’), a geopolitical history of China from 1840.
  • Dr Alfred Gerstl is an International Relations specialist in Southeast Asia, with expert knowledge on the East Asian political and economic systems. Since 2019 he holds a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship at the Department of Asian Studies at Palacký University in Olomouc (Czech Republic). He is also President of the Central European Institute of Asian Studies (CEIAS), a transnational think tank.
