A Consultation Mechanism to Strengthen Military Maritime Safety Between Beijing and Washington: Slot in the Information and Analysis

  • Peter Kien-hong YUEmail author


This chapter attempts to first present the international regimes, mechanism(s), and measure(s) framework, so as to provide readers with a complete picture of how we should read and understand the very first Agreement Between the Department of Defense of the United States of America and the Ministry of National Defense of the People’s Republic of China on Establishing a Consultation Mechanism to Strengthen Military Maritime Safety. As a second step, information and analysis regarding the Agreement will be slotted in (a series of) the crab and frog motion model(s).

To reiterate, the author sincerely pleas that, in future, after putting forward a new law related to a military maritime safety regime, the academics and expert(s) in charge would apply my crab and frog motion and put it at least in the appendix for other interested parties to readily grasp what mechanisms and measures are involved in a specific regime.
