Bridging the cultural gap across the Taiwan Strait: Lung Ying-tai and the case of the magazine freezing point

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapters

Abstract

The signing of the Economic Cooperation Framework Agreement (ECFA) in 2010 between mainland China and Taiwan marks an important step in institutionalizing the economic cooperation across the Taiwan Strait. With deepened economic integration, spéculation is now focused on whether economic interdependence will lead to integration in the political realm. While political integration involves negotiating the political recognition of the governments on both sides of the Strait, equally important in the process is the bridging of the cultural and identity gap between mainland China and Taiwan. As recent conflicts between mainland Chinese and citizens of Hong Kong- suggest, bridging this gap is vital for the stability and sustainability of any future political union in the Greater China region.
