Join a group of 20–25 CIPL members at a monthly brown bag (BYO) lunch to hear short presentations by specialists on recent developments in international law, followed by general discussion.

At present there are a number of confidence building measures underway, led by different organisations, that seek to address regional tensions in the maritime domain in South East Asia. During this presentation Associate Professor Letts will outline three of the projects he has been involved with during the past few years and highlight the key characteristics of each, assess their success/failure and speculate on prospects for the future.
