In this FPRI Radio podcast, Vincent Wang, FPRI Senior Fellow and Professor of Political Science, University of Richmond and Jacques deLisle, Director of FPRI’s Asia Program discuss Taiwan’s pursuit of meaningful participation in international organizations and the international system more broadly. The issues addressed include: Taiwan’s access to UN-affiliated entities such as the World Health Organization and the International Civil Aviation Organization; Taiwan’s participation in key international economic bodies, such as the World Trade Organization, where Taiwan is a full member, and the Trans-Pacific Partnership and other increasingly important regional trade agreements, which Taiwan seeks to join but has not been admitted as a founding members; Taiwan’s robust informal international relations and membership in organizations that do not restrict membership to states; and the possible implications of Taiwan’s—and the U.S.’s—elections in 2016.
