The China-ASEAN Academy on Ocean Law and Governance is an institutionalized platform under the auspices of the China-ASEAN Maritime Cooperation Fund. It is co-hosted annually by the CSARC, the National Institute for South China Sea Studies (NISCSS) and International Ocean Institute-Canada (IOI-Canada). It aims to enhance mutual trust and functional cooperation among China, ASEAN and other Asia Pacific countries.
The China-ASEAN Academy on Ocean Law and Governance seeks to highlight the need to view the ocean as a system used for a variety of purposes, and to promote a greater understanding of the complexity and importance of the coasts, ocean and resources of the South China Sea to the sustainable economic development of China and the ASEAN countries. It also aims to help the participants to adopt an interdisciplinary approach to the study of ocean governance, and explore a variety of opportunities for cooperation among China and ASEAN countries, on both local and national levels.
Since January 2016, five regular programs and one special program on Maritime Law Enforcement (MLE) have taken place so far. The MLE Program aims to enhance understanding, facilitate exchanges and dialogues, as well as promote capacity-building and international cooperation among maritime enforcement officers and agents, so as to address common challenges in relevant fields.
