Dr Daniel Conway and Dr Ipshita Basu led a group of third-year Department of Politics and International Relations students on a study trip to the National Chengchi University, Taipei.

During the week-long visit, students heard about the tensions in the Cross-Straits relations between Taiwan and the People's Republic of China, Taiwanese history and identity, youth activism and protest in Taiwanese society, LGBT rights in Taiwan. We also held joint sessions with Taiwanese students to discuss Brexit and student politics.

Students had time to visit and learn about the diplomatic work carried out by the British Office in Taipei, as well as explore the city and learn more about Taiwanese society.
