In January 2020 Taiwan will hold elections for the president and the legislature. Campaigning for the presidency has long since commenced, and the two main political parties, the KMT and DPP, have selected their candidates. Please join the Freeman Chair in China Studies on September 12th for a discussion on the election dynamics on the island. The event will feature an in-depth analysis of polling data and campaign strategies by Nathan Batto, Associate Research Fellow in the Institute of Political Science of the Academia Sinica, Taiwan’s premier research institution. Following Batto’s presentation, initial commentary will be given by Susan Lawrence, Specialist in Asian Affairs at the Congressional Research Service. The event, which will conclude with audience Q&A, will be moderated by Scott Kennedy, Trustee Chair in Chinese Business and Economics.
This event is funded with support from the Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office (TECRO) in the United States.
