Peaceful unification vs. divided rule : assessing political relations across the Taiwan Strait
New dynamics in cross-Taiwan Strait relations : how far can the rapprochement go?
Since May 2008 the Ma Ying-jeou government in Taiwan has successfully reduced tension with Beijing and ushered in a new era of bilateral cooperation in a wide range of areas. Ma has pursued an accommodation strategy, seeking to minimize conflicts with the mainland. This strategy is best represented by Ma's commitment to the one-China principle to assure Beijing that Taiwan has no intention to pursue de jure independence.
