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

Townshend, Ashley; Medcalf, Rory


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.
