Through an examination with social constructivism paradigm of two case studies of Antarctic treaty and Bialoweiza Forest as a model of science diplomacy and overlook through the nature of South China Sea case, this study found that science diplomacy can be an effective way to foster a solution to territorial dispute in South China Sea as long as there is a declaration of agenda by scientist, epistemic communities to maintain the issues, and a follow up by first track diplomacy that used science as a tool to maintain the negotiation.
