Policy analysis in Taiwan began in the 1970s, but while academics in other countries have recognized the need for detailed examination of the theory and practice of policy at different levels of government, Taiwanese studies have remained limited. This book brings together for the first time a team of experienced and highly respected researchers from across Taiwan with expertise in policy analysis theory and practice in both government and non-governmental organizations. A well-structured volume covering subjects as varied as gender policy, think tanks, social media, and economics, it will be highly relevant for students and academics interested in understanding and analyzing politics and policy making in Taiwan.
