ACPS Conference Report

The ACPS-NCCU International Symposium on
“Peaceful Development and Deepening Integration in the Greater China Region”

Taipei, July 11-12, 2009

In collaboration with the College of International Affairs at the National Chengchi University (NCCU), the ACPS has successfully held the joint conference on “Peaceful Development and Deepening Integration in the Greater China Region" in Taipei between June 11 and 12, 2009. The co-sponsors of the conference also include Taiwan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, National Science Council, Mainland Affairs Council, Research, Development and Evaluation Commission, Foundation on Asia-Pacific Peace Studies, and Research and Development Office of the NCCU. Over 100 Scholars from Taiwan, the United States, Chinese Mainland, Hong Kong, Macao, Australia, Canada, Belgium, Germany, Italy, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, Portugal and Romania participated in the conference, and presented over 50 papers in 19 panels. Topics of their papers include “future of mainland China-Taiwan relations,” “Taiwan’s mainland policy” “ The U.S. factors in cross-strait relations,” “China and the world,”, “political culture and Taiwanese identity,” “Taiwan experience and its impact on mainland China,” “China in transition,” “Taiwan’s political development and its implications,” “the development of civil society in mainland China and Taiwan,” and “globalization and the cross-strait relations. ” The participants took notes of the recent positive development in the cross-strait relations, and provided many insightful and in-depth analyses of the background, political logic, and economic implication of these encouraging developments.

President Se-Hwa Wu of the NCCU and Dr. Baogang Guo, President of the ACPS made opening remarks at the opening ceremony. Although Mr. Wang Jin-pyng, the President of Taiwan's Legislative Yuan, was unable to delivery his keynote speech at the opening ceremony due to a last-minute schedule change, several members from the Legislative Yuan and the Control Yuan attended the conference and presided over several panels. Two dozens of NCCU graduate students volunteered to provide superb services to the conference. Dr. In-ming Lee, Dean of the College of International Affairs, and Dr. Chung-Chian Teng have devoted tremendous amount of time, energy, and resources to the conference. ACPS will publish a special issue on the cross-strait relations, and a number of co-edited volumes based on the selected papers presented to the conference.
