The Impact of Deepened U.S.-Philippines Relations on U.S.-China Tensions

The United States and the Philippines Mutual Defense Treaty, which was signed in 1951, has received new life under the administration of President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. as tensions with China are on the rise. With a series of initiatives to deepen the relationship, Manila finds itself both more able to defend its maritime claims but also more at risk of becoming embroiled on the front line of a potential U.S.-China armed conflict, and thus a target for Beijing. In this episode of Essential Geopolitics, RANE Asia-Pacific Analyst Nate Fischler sheds light on the trajectory of this relationship.  RANE is a global risk intelligence company that delivers risk and security professionals access to critical insights, analysis and support to ensure business continuity and resilience for our clients.

Baker's Dozen: Competition or Cooperation? Fishing in the South China Sea

In this episode of RANE's Baker's Dozen podcast, the conversation turns to the geopolitics of fishing in the South China Sea.&nbsp;At a recent meeting of the Quadrilateral Security Dialogue (the Quad), members agreed to launch an enhanced initiative to tackle illegal, unreported, and unregulated (IUU) fishing.

China has weaponized its fishing fleets through the establishment of Maritime militias, a pattern also followed by countries like Vietnam, and even Russia is considering similar actions. Perhaps even more important than subsea hydrocarbons or mineral resources, it is the increasing consumption of limited regional fish, crab, squid, and other maritime protein sources that drive offshore geopolitics in the enclosed South China Sea.Rodger Baker's guest is James Borton, a Senior Fellow at the Foreign Policy Institut

Baker's Dozen: How Germany Shaped European Geopolitics

In this episode of Baker's Dozen from Stratfor, a RANE company, host Rodger Baker speaks to Dr. James Sheehan, Dickason Professor in the Humanities, Emeritus, At Stanford University, and author of several books and monographs on German History.&nbsp;When we think about classical geopolitics, Germany often emerges at the forefront. It was a contender for Mackinder’s Heartland Power. And it was a place where geopolitical theory was coopted by the state to justify aggressive expansion - and that tainted geopolitics as a field for some time.&nbsp;At the center of modern Europe, along the northern European plain, Germany has been an important playing field or element of European power relationships for centuries. The unification of the German Empire 150 years ago fundamentally altered the path of Europe and the world.Sign Up for the Free Newsletter from Stratfor, a RANE company<a href="https://twitter.com/s
