South China Sea Research is a non-profit, non-governmental online project run by volunteering efforts of a group of researchers to promote better understanding and study of South China Sea disputes. We are doing so by publishing or collecting articles from experts and various professional websites, focusing on facts, data, legal aspects and major development of the South China Sea disputes.
