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.
