Global Taiwan Institute Established!

Russel Hsiao sent this around:

I am very pleased to provide this update to my last e-mail about the forthcoming establishment of the Global Taiwan Institute (GTI; in Washington, DC.

If you have not already done so, please subscribe to receive GTI's updates for upcoming programs and events at I promise not to spam you!

More importantly, the purpose of this e-mail is to share some news about our exciting programs, which will launch at the end of September.

As some of you may remember, I was the Editor of China Brief at the Jamestown Foundation from 07' - 11'. China Brief was and remains an excellent forum for China analysis, but the scope of that publication is necessarily broad.

Against the backdrop of an ever changing landscape in the Taiwan Strait, there is a need and a demand for more diverse as well as robust Taiwan and cross-Strait analysis. Therefore, a pillar of GTI's programs is a weekly publication focused on analyzing policy relevant developments in Taiwan, China-Taiwan, and U.S.-Taiwan relations.

I am looking for authors to write for this publication and contribute short analytical pieces of around 1,000 words. The articles should serve as a bridge between current events and policy analysis. If you or anyone you know might be interested in contributing to the publication, please contact me at and I'll be happy to discuss details.

In any case, don't forget to sign up to receive GTI's updates at and stay tuned for more major announcements!

Best regards,
Don't miss the comments below! And check out my blog and its sidebars for events, links to previous posts and picture posts, and scores of links to other Taiwan blogs and forums!

Done. Subscribed.

But a couple notes on the website: it seems like it's not entirely ready just yet. There are several broken links for all the basic tabs I checked, e.g. "About Us", "Team", "Events", and "Research". I guess the site is a work in progress, please let everyone know when it's up and running.

In the meantime, all us subscribers look forward to the updates!
