Preview

This chapter presents a comparative perspective on the feasibility of “one country, two systems” in solving the problem of Taiwan's political future. Although “one country, two systems” cannot be applied to Taiwan's future as it had developed a unique system different from that of Hong Kong, the broad concept of “one country, two systems” nevertheless can be used to creatively discuss the political destiny of Taiwan. The spirit of “one country, two systems”, characterized by trust, mutual compromise, concessions, and negotiations can be applied to peacefully tackle the political future of Taiwan.

Keywords: one country, two systems; Taiwan; political future; Hong Kong
