A Débat Asie with Prof. Tien Hung-mao and Prof. K’uo Yu-jen, Institute for National Policy Research (INPR), Taiwan, on August 30, 10:00 at Inalco (Paris).
The election of Donald Trump and the subsequent “new deal” in the Indo-Pacific region with specific regards to East Asia has introduced factors of uncertainties. Meanwhile in Taiwan a new administration has worked to find the appropriate breathing space and key elements to rebalance the island’s positioning. As a long timer in the practice and study of international relations, Prof. Tien will express his personal views on the current and future paths for Taiwan and the region.
Prof. K’uo Yu-jen, Professor at Kaohsiung University, Taiwan and Executive Director of INPR will also attend and be available for additional comments.

Prof. Tien has established the Evergreen Foundation, which then became the Chang Yung-fa foundation, as a think-tank based in Taiwan and working on international relations. Upon his return to Taiwan he was appointed Head of Institute for National Policy Research (INPR), which Pr K’uo is Executive Director of.
