The recent flare-up between the Philippines and China over Scarborough Shoal is a territorial sovereignty dispute, but it also raises issues relating to the interpretation and application of UN Convention on the Law of the Sea. The main issue is whether the two States can move beyond the current stand-off and negotiate a joint cooperation arrangement to manage fisheries exploitation in the area in dispute.

It’s not the first time Iran has played high-stakes brinksmanship—recall the 5th century B.C., when Persia faced off against the Greeks. Classics professor James Romm on how history repeats itself.
The Daily Beast, Apr 12, 2012
- The debate in the U.S. and Israel over attacking Iranian nuclear sites is a very modern dilemma, but history offers some surprisingly ancient parallels. Iran, it seems, has played the high-stakes game of advanced-weapons proliferation before - in the 5th century B.C., when it was known as Persia, and when the Western powers it confronted were the classical Greek city-states led by Athens and Sparta.
