In June and December 2020, the Taiwan Studies Programme organised two online international conferences, focused on the 'Populism and Elections in Great Britain, the United States and Taiwan'.
The outcome of these two conferences is the publication of a special section on the Taiwan Journal of Democracy in July 2021. The authors of this special section will introduce their papers and interact with readers through a virtual space.
The University of Nottingham's Taiwan Studies Programme presents an online book launch hosted by editors Michael Reilly and Dr Chun-yi Lee who will invite co-authors to join them and present their chapters.
Routledge Research on Taiwan Series A New Era in Democratic Taiwan Trajectories and Turning Points in Politics and Cross-Strait Relations Edited by Jonathan Sullivan and Chun-Yi Lee.
This book identifies past, present and future trajectories in party politics and state-society relations in Taiwan. Providing a comprehensive examination of public opinion data, it sheds light on significant changes in the composition of political attitudes amongst the electorate.
Through theoretical and empirical analyses, this book also demonstrates the emergence of a ‘new’ Taiwanese identity during the transition to democracy and shows how a diffusion of interests in society have led to an opening for niche political organisations. The result, it argues, is a long-term challenge to the ruling parties.
