MetadataShow full item record

That was when it brought its case into the halls of the Peace Palace, the home of the Permanent Court of Arbitration in Geneva. For Manila, international law is one of the last lines of defense against China's transgressions, noted Sean Mirski, a China watcher and Supreme Chair of the Harvard Law Review, in an article published by The Diplomat magazine.
