Posted on Jul, 17 2017

Already a stalwart of our regular activities, the Fifth Young Scholars Workshop 2017 on “Taiwan in the Global Arena” took place in Freudenstadt and Tuebingen between 2 and 7 July, 2017. The CCKF-ERCCT again invited a dozen young European and Taiwanese scholars to discuss their research projects with leading Taiwan scholars Prof. Chen Lu-Huei, Prof. Yang Wanying, Prof. Hu Shaohua and Prof. Sasa Istenic as well as with ERCCT director Prof. Gunter Schubert and ERCCT Fellows. Panels on Cross-Strait Issues, Taiwan and Japan, the New Southbound Policy, Taiwan’s Security Issues and East and Southeast Asia's Island Conflicts were on the workshop agenda. Academic exchange was accompanied with some touristic activities such as the group picture below indicates with our visit to the beautiful Hohenzollern castle south of Tuebingen.
