Eatablishment of a Legal Framework for Sea Lane Security Cooperation in the Asia Pacific Region
【中文摘要】近年来，海上通道安全问题日渐成为众多学科研究的前沿领域。但至目前为止，仍鲜有从整个亚太地区探讨区域合作和构建合作的法律框架等问题的研究。本文从对亚太地区海上通道相关问题的界定入手，并在此基础上论及关于安全与合作的现状与出路，继而从理论和现实层面指出构建安全合作法律框架的必要性，并对法律框架的特征、原则、内容、组织等方面提出一些设想，最后总结影响法律框架构建的积极和消极因素，展望亚太地区海上通道安全合作法律框架的前景及中国的选择和应当发挥的作用。 【Abstract】Sea lane security has become an issue at the forefront of various research disciplines. However，there has been a little analysis of regional cooperation and the potential for a legal framework for such cooperation in the Asia Pacific region. This paper begins with a discussion of relevant issues for the sea lanes in the Asia Pacific region. It then examines the status quo and the prospects for cooperation on security issues. It goes on to note the importance of establishing a legal framework for security cooperation from both theoretical and practical perspectives. The paper proposes the characteristics, principles, content, and organization of such a legal framework. It offers an examination of the positive and negative factors affecting such a legal framework and outlines the prospects for such a framework for sea lane security cooperation in the Asia Pacific region. The paper ends with a discussion of China's choices and roles to play.
