Chang Yenchiang：On Legal Implementation Approaches Toward A Maritime Community With A Shared Future
School of Law, Dalian Maritime University, Dalian
Abstract:President Xi Jinping proposed to build ‘a maritime community with a shared future’ in April 2019. It is a political concept, however, which needs further interpretation. The fundamental questions to be answered are: What is its legal basis? What are its main contents? In what way can it be implemented? After analysis, this paper concludes that ‘a maritime community with a shared future’ is a way toward the goal of ‘a community with a shared future for humankind’, which has a solid legal basis. It also suggests that the building of ‘a maritime community with a shared future’ should be based on ‘point-line-dimension geographical mode’ with an integrated ‘short-medium-long term plan’.
