Thus, questions shall be tackled like, how do Taiwan and China act in international organization? What goals do both countries pursue with regard to each other? How do they deal with each other in international organizations on the organizational level? What interactions can be identified, how do these influence each other and how did they change during the last years? And what can be expected in the future?  At the end possible future developments regarding Taiwan's future in international organizations shall be assessed.
