Cross-Taiwan Strait Relations in an Era of Technological Change: Introduction

Elisabeth Forster , Jan Knoerich

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Technological change is one of the main contemporary challenges and sources of uncertainty facing mainland China and Taiwan. It is also a key cause of the rapid political, economic and cultural shifts that characterise contemporary relations between the two. The issue has clear policy relevance for both sides and this book offers a truly original contribution to current research on the subject that can appeal to both academic and professional audiences. The chapters are based on research by international experts originating from Taiwan, mainland China, the United States, and Europe, enabling a mosaic of perspectives to be presented from different geostrategic standpoints, including national security, economics and culture, each in an interdisciplinary fashion.
