Research Project

Sheu Jyh-Shyang is working on his Ph.D. project “A Study on cross-strait political interaction between 1988 to 2012” (working title). The objectives of the project is to analyze the interaction of cross-strait relations, especially in the realm of “high politics” and to try to answer why both Taiwan and China could not get a step further on issues of high politics. Sheu Jyh-Shyang tries to describe the structure of cross-strait triangular relations through “two-level analysis,” which meaning to take into account both domestic issues and the “american factor” as playing a crucial role in cross-strait relations and limiting both Taiwan's and China's room for maneuver.
