The South China Sea dispute – What regions are involved and what is causing the controversy? The dispute has certainly been a long-standing one, and one that doesn’t seem to be fading for now.

That is why the Voice of America is taking a comprehensive look at this controversial issue in a new multimedia special report, consisting of an interactive infographic of the region and provides an overview with separate profile pages for each of the claimant nations.

The country profiles highlight assertions of individual nations in the region, explaining what they control, their economic interests, and the infrastructure they have established in the area. The multimedia aspect of the project includes content on each nation via slideshows, videos, photo galleries, and additional graphics.

VOA provides a detailed timeline, dating back to World War II, of all the key dates in history relating to the controversy. The special report also includes the latest headlines and news stories from VOA on the dispute.

As a comprehensive resource on the South China Sea territorial disputes, this VOA microsite will be continuously updated with any new developments. The interactive multimedia report is also available in Mandarin, Cantonese, Indonesian, Khmer, Vietnamese, and Lao.
