About EATS

The European Association of Taiwan Studies (EATS) was established at SOAS in 2004 with the objective of developing Taiwan studies not only in the UK, but also in other European countries. By holding regular conferences we aim to increase the interaction between European based researchers working in Taiwan studies and to raise the profile of Taiwan Studies in Europe. The EATS Conference is held at a different European country each year and has now become the largest Taiwan Studies academic event in Europe. Conferences have been held in the UK, Germany, France, Sweden, Czech Republic, Slovenia and Spain. EATS is now an independent legally registered association managed by an international committee. The Association has been instrumental in the rapid development of Taiwan Studies research, teaching and publication over the last decade.

The European Association of Taiwan Studies has been supported by the Chiang Ching-kuo Foundation.
