Vision

 
 
◆ Domestic Seminars and Conferences:The department often cooperates with government agencies such as the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the National Youth Commission, the Office of Government Information and private academic institutions – including the Taiwan Research Institute, the Taiwan Democracy Foundation, and the CTS Culture and Education Foundation – to organize various seminars and conferences. For instance, in 2002, the Public Forum for Foreign Policy was created with the sponsorship of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to serve as a channel of exchanges among the general public, government, and academia. Every year, before the end of the second semester, the department holds its annual conference of international relations.
 
◆ International Conferences and Workshops: Recently, the department has reached consensus over the enhancement of academic cooperation with Canadian and Australian universities and has organized scores of conferences concerning mutual relations. Since 2003 the department has organized the annual Workshop on International Negotiation and Conflict Resolution. Not only do these academic events promote scholarly and theoretical discussions, but they also increase the opportunities for students to practice foreign languages.
 
◆ The Journal of International Relations: The department publishes regularly Journal of International Relations as one of the most crucial hubs that circulate scholars and experts research notes about foreign affairs and international relations theories.
 
◆ The Lab of International Communication and Negotiation (LICAN): The department is the pioneer department centering exclusively on international law and foreign affairs in the Republic of China. With the goal of bringing theory and practice together, the department houses LICAN that was established in October, 2002. LICAN has been actively offering undergraduate and graduate courses on international negotiation and become the major driving force for the Workshop on International Negotiation and Conflict Resolution.
 
◆ The Lab of International Conflict and Crisis Management (LICCM): International conflict and crisis management have become an undivided part of international security and also the mainstream study of contemporary academic research. In order to promote teaching and research in this regard, LICCM, launched in 2002, has been strongly supportive of related academic events and been in charge of the annual conference on “Rethinking National Security” in June, 2004.
◆  Diplomacy Graduate Student Symposium: To enhance graduate students research capability, the department has organized annually the Diplomacy Graduate Student Symposium since 2001 (no symposium in 2002). This symposium is a platform for M.A. students of second years or above, as well as Ph.D. students, to present their academic papers and exchange their ideas and viewpoints with scholars within and outside the campus.
