This paper has investigated 'The South China Sea conflict' based on citizens' views from different countries and compares the territorial disputes. It discusses conflicts in the South China Sea and their implications and resolutions viewed from the International Law and citizens' opinions in Southeast Asia. This paper aims to reach the different nationalities' genuine perceptions of the South China Sea conflicts, including their perceptions of the South China Sea conflict versus the views based on their countries of origin, particularly for Chinese and Filipino. Furthermore, this paper identifies whether peaceful solutions are appropriate based on different nationalities' perceptions. Through a mixed-method with both quantitative method and qualitative approaches, questionnaires, data analysis and interviews are used to investigate in-depth perceptions of 'The South China Sea conflict'. The research objectives, questions, and hypotheses can be verified. The research outcome is then used to compare with previous research conducted by other researchers.
