Taiwan And Southeast Asia: Opportunities And Constraints Of Continued Engagement, Bo-Jiun Jing Jan 2016

Taiwan And Southeast Asia: Opportunities And Constraints Of Continued Engagement, Bo-Jiun Jing

Maryland Series in Contemporary Asian Studies

Over the past three decades, Taiwan has seen continued and expanded engagement with Southeast Asia. In the late 1980s and the early 1990s, under LEE Teng-hui’s presidency, the Republic of China (hereafter, R.O.C. or Taiwan) started to pursue a set of “Go South” policy initiatives to deepen its ties with the member countries of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), aimed at securing the island’s political and economic interests in the region.

This monograph attempts to analyze Taiwan-ASEAN relations from a variety of perspectives: political development, economic cooperation, and cultural engagement, as well as the ...


Peaceful Settlement Of Disputes In The South China Sea Through Fisheries Resources Cooperation And Management, Kuan-Hsiung Wang Jan 2015

Peaceful Settlement Of Disputes In The South China Sea Through Fisheries Resources Cooperation And Management, Kuan-Hsiung Wang

Maryland Series in Contemporary Asian Studies

The South China Sea dispute is complicated in terms of its nature, the sovereignty issues of the islands, delimitation issues, resources utilization as well as other matters concerning security (both traditional and non-traditional). In order to solve the dispute, cooperation is one of the main considerations. However, the practice has not been realized.

In order to solve the dispute and promote cooperation in the South China Sea region, the author suggests that conserving and managing fishery resources could be established as a starting point. There are a great number of management means, institutions, and international instruments (such as conventions, treaties ...


Seeking Common Ground While Keeping Differences: “Using The Case Of Cross-Strait Relations As A Case”, Charles Chong-Han Wu Jan 2014

Seeking Common Ground While Keeping Differences: “Using The Case Of Cross-Strait Relations As A Case”, Charles Chong-Han Wu

Maryland Series in Contemporary Asian Studies

For the past decade, the “joint democracy produces peace” theory has received substantial attention. Evidence has confirmed that democracies rarely, if ever, engage in large-scale conflicts with each other. However, there is a lack of specific information regarding the mixed dyads (democracies and non-democracies), especially when we attempt to study their peace scenarios. Hence, some other international relations scholars proclaim that even though the political structures may be different between democracies and non-democracies, sharing similar interests provide certain strong incentives for states to behave peacefully. Regime types may be influential, but under the mixed dyads scenario, states’ vital interests have ...


Indonesia Beyond Reformasi: Necessity And The “De-Centering” Of Democracy, Leonard C. Sebastian, Jonathan Chen, Adhi Priamarizki Jan 2014

Indonesia Beyond Reformasi: Necessity And The “De-Centering” Of Democracy, Leonard C. Sebastian, Jonathan Chen, Adhi Priamarizki

Maryland Series in Contemporary Asian Studies

We argue that Indonesia’s path to democracy was borne out of necessity brought about by a state of extreme precariousness and then molded by its lack thereof. Its lack thereof precisely reflected the internal power struggle and elite competition between remnant groups of the New Order vying under a different set of circumstances. Notwithstanding the given peculiarities of Indonesia’s transition, the current state of democracy in Indonesia is clearly one that is also shaped by the patrimonial character of the New Order. While imminent necessity acts as a temporary stop to ensure that these predatory tendencies of Indonesia ...

Taiwan’S 2014 Nine-In-One Election: Gauging Politics, The Parties, And Future Leaders, John F. Copper

Maryland Series in Contemporary Asian Studies

On Saturday November 29, 2014 voters in Taiwan (officially known as the Republic of China) went to the polls to cast ballots for mayors and city council members of the metropolitan cities, mayors and councilors of the counties and provincial cities, town- ship chiefs and councilors, aboriginal district chiefs and councilors, and borough and village chiefs. Sometimes called Taiwan’s “midterms”, these combined elections are held at four-year intervals, scheduled in between its national presidential/vice presidential and legislative elections. The midterms are now considered nearly as important as the latter elections, one of the reasons being as of 2014 ...
