- Mapping a Stateless Continent, a 2017 paper by John Manning, in which he described Antarctica as a stateless continent never having had an indigenous population, nor a permanent colonial occupation that exercised political or economic control. Consequently, it has had no clear single ownership or governance, and mapping has come from a number of contributing sources.
