Preliminary call for papers
26 March 2018

for an international conference on
Taiwan’s Cultural Diplomacy
to be held 25-27 October 2019, in Vienna, Austria, in the context of
A Decade of Intercultural Discovery: 2009-2019
marking the 10th anniversary of the founding of
the Vienna Center for Taiwan Studies

Increasingly, Taiwan has been refused formal international political participation and diplomatic contacts that do not recognize the „One China“ principle. Luckily, Taiwan has other opportunities to present itself and become better known globally. 

This October 2019 conference, organized by the Vienna Center for Taiwan Studies as it marks its 10th anniversary, will honor successes, explore possible channels and offer advice on enhancing promotion of Taiwan in the future.

Suggested panels include the following, and can be extended into other fields: 

1. Economics: The Southbound strategy
2. Politics: Multiparty democracy is workable in the Asian context
3. Culture: Promoting Taiwan in Art and Literature
4. Culture 2: Filmmaking in and on Taiwan
5. Ethnicity: Ethnic Multiplicity in Taiwan
6. Gender: Developing an International Model for Equality
7. Law: Continental European roots shared with Japan and Korea.
Sharing the UN human rights conventions with the world
8. Environment: Creating a sustainable Island
