Taiwan’s Battle for Diplomatic Space

Addressing vulnerability and promoting security
Posted Sep 29, 2022 | Observer Research Foundation

Taiwan is facing an existential identity crisis, one whose consequences extend well beyond the region. Being a vibrant democracy and the 19th largest economy in the world, this regional player could effectively advance the cause of democracy and human rights, suggest Sitra Sinivas and Shashank Mattoo in their Occasional Paper for the Observer Research Foundation. The authors note that the island’s 23 million inhabitants exist between two sovereignties: secure in its identity as a democracy and an economic powerhouse; but with an uncertain international sovereignty. They explain Taiwan’s political position in the international community and the threats to its participation in global affairs, offer policy recommendations for Taiwan, and explore India’s stakes and role.
