Come and join the China-Taiwan cross-straits debate!

10 June 2014

Monday 23 June, 2–3.30pm, Room 105, 24 Gordon Square, UCL
The debate will bring together established academics and UCL graduate students to explore contemporary Taiwan-China relations in the light of the recent Sunflower protest movement (太阳花学运).

We will examine the impact of closer economic ties and greater freedom of movement on cross-straits relations. We will also look at the influence these changes are likely to have have on Taiwan’s domestic politics. Finally, we will ask what an ideal relationship would be between Taiwan and mainland China and how to reconcile different perspectives. 

Speakers will include Dr Lily Chang (Lecturer in the History of Early Modern and Modern China, UCL) and Dylan Brethour (Graduate student, UCL History).

This event is convened by the UCL China Centre for Health and Humanity (CCHH), and organised by Dylan Brethour.
