About this book

The initiative and leadership for this edited volume came from the European Institute for Asian Studies (EIAS) based in Brussels. The book discusses various questions related to the different European perspectives on Taiwan, for example, how the European Union has dealt with the unresolved status of the Republic of China on Taiwan, the ways in which Europe has been seen as a model for Taiwan’s transformation, and whether the EU model offers any lessons for cross-Strait integration. The authors, well-known specialists drawn from disciplines such as economics, political science, international law, history and cultural studies are equally interested in Taiwan’s perspectives on Europe and in the historical relationship between Taiwan and Europe.
