Taiwan’s Sunflower Seeds: Student Protests, Cross-Strait Agreements, and Their Implications for Taiwan Politics and US Policy (Audio)

In this edition of FPRI radio, Jacques deLisle assembles three FPRI Senior Fellows to explore why a group of students recently occupied Taiwan’s legislature, and the group’s evolving mix of aims and agendas. Other topics include the Cross-Strait Trade in Services Agreement and its perceived economic implications, allegations of undemocratic processes by Taiwan’s ruling KMT Party, the call for a citizens’ constitutional conference, and how all of these issues affect Taiwan’s upcoming local (2014) and national (2016) elections, Cross-Strait relations, and US foreign policy in the region.
