POLL DESCRIPTION
Writing in Proceedings magazine, Jeremy Thompson suggests that if the courts grant legitimacy to the Philippines' claim, this might place China "…in a position from which it must either comply or resort to escalation and aggression as was experienced in the Cod Wars."

Do you think this conflict will escalate?
