Taiwan Studies Workshop – Taiwan Elections 2022: The Politicians’ Perspective
November 15, 2022 @ 8:00 am – 9:30 am
On November 26, Taiwan will be holding elections for nine local jurisdictions ranging from mayors of special municipalities such as Taipei to county magistrates down to the village chiefs. As the 2024 Presidential election approaches, this so-called “Nine in One Election” will be carefully watched for clues to the relative strength of Taiwan’s parties.
On November 15 and 17, the Fairbank Center’s Taiwan Studies Workshop will host two virtual seminars focused on the upcoming elections.
