The ASEAN R2P challenge: Establishing a regional responsibility to protect permanent sovereignty over natural resources
College of Law
The recent flexing of Chinese military muscle over South China Sea does not augur well for regional peace, stability, and security. At the same time, natural fault lines and political fissures have sown ASEAN discord. Truly, the battle over South China Sea revolves around the issue of entitlement to Permanent Sovereignty over Natural Resources (PSNR). However, a closer look at PSNR would reveal that this principle has evolved from state rights to state duties. As a duty, this principle comes with the responsibility to protect the PSNR of other states - a call for A SEAN solidarity.
