Taiwan's Democratic Consolidation, 2000-2001: About 1000 Internet documents
collected by Christan Goebel (M.A.)
Ed./Corp.: Christian Goebel, University of Heidelberg, Germany ; Digital
Archive for Chinese Studies (DACHS), University of Heidelberg, Germany.
Language: English; parts of the resources in Chinese (Big5).
Self description: This small collection is the result of my online-harvest
of newspaper articles and documents I deemed useful for my Master's thesis.
The aim of the thesis was to trace the process of Taiwan's democratic
consolidation. [...] The Internet proved to be a valuable source of
information, as all of Taiwan's major newspapers and magazines can be
accessed online, as well as all legal documents and many official
statements. Apart from these sources, which form the bulk of my archive, I
was also able to collect a number of Master's theses and a few extensive
opinion surveys conducted by Academica Sinica's Institute of Anthropology.
The material presented here covers mainly the years 2000 and 2001. Please
note that these files only served as a supplement for what I could not find
in print and were, at first, not intended to be accessed publicly. Neither
do they constitute a complete collection on the various subjects they cover,
nor is their naming always consistent.
Description: Part of the growing Digital Archive for Chinese Studies (DACHS,
http://www.sino.uni-heidelberg.de/dachs/) project. Due to difficulties
