The initiative and leadership for this edited volume came from the European Institute for Asian Studies (EIAS) based in Brussels. The book discusses questions related to the different European perspectives on Taiwan in various fields, asking, in particular: How has the European Union dealt with the unsolved status of the Republic of China on Taiwan? In which ways has Europe been seen as a model for Taiwan’s transformation, and whether the EU model offers any lessons for cross-Strait integration. The authors, well-known specialists drawn from disciplines such as economics, political science, international law, history and cultural studies are equally interested in Taiwan’s perspectives on Europe and in the historical relationship between Taiwan and Europe.
