    The South China Sea monitor is a monthly maritime tracker produced and published by the ORF. The monitor tracks and analyses maritime developments in the Asia-Pacific with a special focus on the South China Sea. Published in the first week of every month, each issue of the monitor carries highlights of one key development of the previous month, a round-up of the debates in the media on the region, a collection of the most recent journal articles, commentaries, books and reports as well as two opinion pieces analysing events in the maritime domain in Asia.

    The monitor aims to keep its readers up-to-date on the geopolitical and strategic changes in the Asia-Pacific and offer its readers a useful database on the most recent publications on broader issues in the region. The monitor is a key resource for students, policymakers, academics and strategic thinkers on the developments in the South China Sea and beyond.
