    Title: Sigur Center Asia Report, Issue 36: Taiwan Goes to the Polls: Ramifications of Change at Home and Abroad
    Author: Sigur Center for Asian Studies
    Description: As Taiwan casts votes for a new government in January 2016, the world is watching closely to see how the election might shake up Taipei’s domestic policies and its relationships with neighbors. Polls indicate the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) candidate, Tsai Ing-wen, has a 2-to-1 lead over the ruling Kuomintang (KMT) and its candidate, Eric Chu, as well as the DPP likely securing a majority in the Legislative Yuan. The KMT is perceived by voters as being pro-China, so the shift in domestic politics driving the probable DPP victory may have profound implications for regional security and economic dynamics, not to mention U.S. foreign policy in East Asia. In this Asia Report, we present the analysis offered at a recent conference – Voting for Change: The Impact of Taiwan’s Upcoming Elections, sponsored by the Sigur Center for Asian Studies.

    Author: Sigur Center for Asian Studies
    Description: 2015 served as the 70th anniversary of the end of WWII which was celebrated by many Asian countries, including the P.R.C. and Korea. Lost among much of this commemoration has been the role of the R.O.C. at the end of WWII, including its contribution to the Chinese victory over Japan and how this influenced subsequent events on the Mainland. These topics were discussed at a Taiwan Roundtable on “The R.O.C. at the End of WWII,” held at the Sigur Center for Asian Studies. The roundtable included opening remarks by Dr. Lyushun Shen, Representative, Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office in the United States (TECRO). Following his remarks, a panel of experts provided their insights, including James Hsiung, Professor of Political Science, New York University, William Kirby, T.M. Chang Professor of China Studies, Harvard University, and Maochun Yu, Professor, US Naval Academy.
