CfP: Special issue on ‘Transitions and Challenges in Taiwan’s Economy and Society’

Call for papers

The aim in this topical section of the International Journal of Taiwan Studies is to bring together inquiries that address the debates in the hope of facilitating dialogues regarding the issues related to the economic and social transitions in Taiwan. What have been the most salient structural features of Taiwan’s economic and social transitions in the past three decades, what are the major consequences of these transitions, and what challenges does Taiwan now face? We hope the issue will advance empirical understanding of the emergent phenomenon critical to Taiwan’s development and contribute to a more theoretically informed discussion within the interdisciplinary field of Taiwan studies. Scholars from all disciplines of the social sciences are welcome to send their submissions on the following specific topics but also other topics to aid in achieving a global understanding of Taiwan’s path of transition.
