S. Philip Hsu
S. Philip Hsu was a visiting fellow in the Brooking Institution’s Center for East Asia Policy Studies and is also a Fulbright Scholar. Back in Taiwan, he is a professor of political science and director of the Center for China Studies at National Taiwan University (NTU). He was department chair at NTU and president of the Chinese Association of Political Science (Taipei). Philip’s research areas include international relations (with an emphasis on Asia-Pacific and cross-strait relations) and comparative politics (with an emphasis on China’s domestic political economy). He is now working on a project of recent strategic interactions among the U.S., Taiwan, and China that explores, among other things, the impacts of changing domestic political dynamics and cleavages in the three polities. Providing policy advice to the Taiwan government, he was on the advisory committee under Mainland Affairs Council, Executive Yuan, and is now on the advisory committee under the Sea Exchange Foundation. Philip has co-edited twelve volumes published in Taiwan, China, and the English-speaking world, such as “In Search of China’s Development Model: Beyond the Beijing Consensus” (Routledge, 2011), and “Minzhu, Minzhuhua, and Zhili Jixiao” (“Democracy, Democratization and Governance Performance”) (China: Zhejiang University Press, 2011).
