You are invited to join the Royal United Services Institute for the book launch of Cross-Taiwan Strait Relations in an Era of Technological Change: Security, Economic and Cultural Dimensions with Dr Irwin Crookes and Dr Knoerich.
Technological change is one of the main contemporary challenges and sources of uncertainty facing mainland China and Taiwan. It is also a key cause of the rapid political, economic and cultural shifts that characterize contemporary relations between the two sides. The issue has clear policy relevance for both sides and this book offers an original contribution to current research on the subject that can appeal to both academic and professional audiences.
Dr Irwin Crookes and Dr Knoerich will present their research findings in a closed-door roundtable and engage in a Q&A discussion with the audience.
Paul Irwin Crookes (PhD, Cambridge) is Lecturer in the International Relations of China and Director of Graduate Studies for the Contemporary China Studies Programme at the University of Oxford, UK. He has particular research interests in EU-China economic and political relations, East Asian security, China's innovation capabilities, and the development of international regimes as part of the evolution of global governance.
Jan Knoerich (PhD, SOAS) is Lecturer in the Economy of China and Programme Convenor for the MSc China and Globalisation at the Lau China Institute, King's College London, UK.
