On April 3, GTI hosted a panel titled “A Political Profile of Taiwan’s Youth.” With the Sunflower Movement of 2014, Taiwanese youth became a significant factor in Taiwan’s politics. But there are different characterizations of the political tendency of this young political generation. One popular characterization is that Taiwan’s youth is “born pro-independent” (tianran du), whereas another characterization depicts this young generation as “strawberry,” meaning they have no strong commitment to defend Taiwan. What does Taiwan’s younger generation really think about democracy, Taiwan’s relation with China, and defending Taiwan? The Taiwan Foundation for Democracy (TFD) recently conducted a survey to assess attitudes toward these critical issues. GTI welcomed TFD President Dr. Szu-chien Hsu to share the survey’s findings and Dr. Daniel Twining, president of the International Republican Institute, as the discussant.
