Post-Presidential Election: The Future of Taiwan Explored

Interested in the results from this year's Taiwanese Presidential election?
Curious about what's next in store for Taiwan's future?
What is the role of youth in Taiwan's democracy?

"The Future of Taiwan" conference aims to bring together Torontonians interested in foreign affairs and Taiwanese politics for a critical discussion on the results of Taiwan's presidential election that took place on January 16, 2016. Specifically, the panels will provide expert perspectives on predicted political, economic, and social changes as a result of the election, followed by brief question and answer sessions and panel discussion.

The first panel will discuss the regional impact of the election, with a special focus on Taiwanese-Chinese relations and prospects for Taiwan's democracy. The second panel will highlight impacts of the election pertaining specifically to Taiwanese youth living both domestically and abroad.
