The National Democratic Institute (NDI) is pleased to invite you to join a virtual panel discussion on NDI’s new video series, Faces of Democracy: Taiwan.
In the face of numerous domestic and international challenges, Taiwan has transitioned into a leading example of a resilient and mature democracy in the Asia-Pacific region. Illustrating how the perseverance of key policymakers continues to shape the country’s diverse and democratic political landscape, Faces of Democracy: Taiwan showcases the lives and political journeys of four women working in politics in Taiwan and the particular intersection of challenges they face as LGBTI, indigenous, and young women. These videos each tell the personal story of Hsu Chiao Hsin, Lai Pin Yu, Miao Po Ya, and Tuhi Martukaw, in their words and from the perspective of colleagues who know them best.
The event will feature experts as they discuss the video series, as well as connections to larger themes including women’s political participation in Taiwan and Taiwan’s role as a democracy and governance leader. Ahead of the event, please send questions for the Q&A session to [email protected].
