Posted on Dec, 15 2015

On December 12 and 13, the European Research Center on Contemporary Taiwan hosted an international workshop titled "Assessing the Presidency of Ma Ying-jeou", an event co-organised with the China Policy Institute at the University of Nottingham.

Over the two days, renowned scholars from Taiwan and Europe discussed the developments of the past eight years from a variety of angles. The papers and discussions covered the political, economic and social changes and challenges that marked the Ma era since the Presidential elections in 2008.

The paper presentations incited intensive debates. Central themes included Taiwan's relation to the People's Republic of China, transformations of Taiwan's political spectrum and civil society, and an outlook on the upcoming presidential and legislative elections in January 2016.
