Center for Taiwan Studies

The ARI Center for Taiwan Studies was founded in April 2009 to serve as a representative hub for Taiwan studies in Korea, taking into consideration the harsh reality of Taiwan studies. The center not only conducts academic research on Taiwan's politics, economy, society, and culture, but also aims to be a channel of exchange between Korea and Taiwan in the non-academic sector as well through regular and continuous exchanges with important figures in various fields in Taiwan. The main projects that the center is implementing are as follows: collecting data on Taiwan, reaching research agreements with major universities and institutes in Taiwan, nurturing Taiwan studies researchers in Korea, supporting research projects on Taiwan, inviting visiting scholars from Taiwan, and holding regular symposiums.
