CCKF-ERCCT Visiting Scholar Dr. Astrid Lipinsky's edited volume entitled Immigration Societies: Taiwan and Beyond has been published just this month with LIT Wien:

The book addresses immigration within and towards Taiwan from the perspectives of the state, immigrant organizations, the Taiwanese NGO movement and youth literature, among others. Contributions are both based on empirical research and interviews and on the application of international theoretical frameworks to the case of Taiwan, while highlighting the specific Taiwanese example and experience. Papers include a comparative perspective.
