CASSME Viewpoints is the second newsletter series from our centre. Here, we cover policy issues regarding Taiwan-South Asia relations. The aim is to invite scholars and young researches from South Asia and Taiwan to present their views on the current and past political, economic and social developments and similar issues relevant to Taiwan- South Asia relations. The idea is to represent scholars’ various perspectives related to a special focused theme in each issue.

Each issue aims to inform, create debate and deliver prospective outlooks and policy recommendations. Thus all opinions, statements and thoughts are welcomed and represented. We particularly welcome your feedback and suggestions to keep progressing with our initiative.
