Yung Lin's PhD research project is entitled: Has Public Diplomacy in East Asia Become a Solution to this Region’s Conflict? – From the Comparative Perspective of China and Taiwan in the last two decades (2000 - 2020). It is supervised by Prof. Madeleine Hosli and Prof. Caitlin Byrne from Griffith University.
This research project aims to evaluate to what extent public diplomacy in East Asia becomes a conflict resolution and to advise on Taiwan’s diplomatic policy in pursuit of this region’s stable integration. From 2000 to 2020 in East Asia, the awareness of promoting a stable regional integration has been growing, and most importantly the demand for conflict resolution. Along with the dynamic economic interaction, east Asian countries have been in pursuit of soft power and public diplomacy strategy. China's asserted peaceful rising has been devoted into building is nation's image. Taiwan being left out of this region’s integration but boasting with many soft power resources is lack of strategy. This project is to examine to what extent has public diplomacy in East Asia become a solution to this region’s conflict, particularly from the comparative perspective of the cases between China’s and Taiwan’s public diplomacy strategies in the last two decades.
