Time for the Philippines to adjust to the South China Sea problem
MetadataShow full item record
Growing territorial tensions in the South China Sea are taking a toll on the sizeable Filipino-Chinese community in the Philippines. Recently, one of the most celebrated Filipino writers went so far as to implicitly question the loyalty of the Filipino-Chinese community in an event of war with China, prompting vigorous rebuttals from leading Filipino-Chinese intellectuals. Slowly, according to Richard Javad Heydarian, professor of political science at the La Salle University in Manila, it is becoming clear that the Philippines' territorial standoff with China not only carries the risk of possible conflict in disputed waters and a precipitous decline in Chinese investments.
