Europe’s member states have too much to lose from a maritime conflict in East Asia to maintain their current position as cautious observers, according to a new report from ECFR.

'Danger on the High Seas: An East Asian Security Challenge', by Volker Stanzel, a former German ambassador in both Beijing and Tokyo, explores the territorial and diplomatic drivers underpinning maritime border disputes in the South and East China Seas, highlighting in particular the combination of USA-China competition and Beijing’s assertive and unpredictable behaviour in the region.
