Areas of expertise My principles area of research is in regional and economic cooperation and development in East Asia and Greater China. My current research examines processes of political and economic development in Taiwan and the People’s Republic of China. I am currently writing a book on the impact of the non-state actor in the policy-making process in East Asia. Examining the dominant role of civic and economic actors in evolving socio-economic relations and policy across the Taiwan Straits, it utilises case study analysis to highlight the contribution of transnational resources, international norms, and informal institutions in popular mobilisation efforts to press for regulatory liberalisation and policy reform.

My research interests also include the international relations of Taiwan and the PRC; foreign-domestic policy-making, and state-societal/state-business relations. Currently developing a new project on Sino-European Relations, I am particularly interested in the implications this relationship represents for the international arena, and for cooperation and regionalism.
