On May 25-26, the Taiwan Democracy Project will hold its seventh annual conference on "How the Public Views Democracy and its Competitors in East Asia: Taiwan in Comparative Perspective." The conference, co-sponsored by the Program for East Asia Democratic Studies at National Taiwan University, brings together leading political scientists from Taiwan and social scientists from a number of other Asian countries to examine the levels, trends, and causal determinants of support for democracy in Taiwan and throughout East Asia. The papers analyze data from the recently completed third wave of the Asian Barometer Survey. Discussants will include leading scholars of comparative politics and comparative public opinion globally.
