The roundtable conference, hosted by Taiwan Corner and the European Parliament-Taiwan Friendship Group, focused on social movements, Cross-Strait relations, Taiwan’s democracy, and how the new president would affect the nation’s future development.

The chairman of Taiwan Corner and the host of this roundtable discussion, Michael Danielsen, stated that the motivation of this conference was the result of the 2016 presidential election.

People who were invited to the roundtable conference included, Lin Fei-fan, representing The Black Island Nation Youth Front, Dr. Alice Ekman, researcher from French Institute of International Relations, and one representative from the KMT.     [FULL  STORY]
