Policy analysis in Taiwan

The role of Think Tanks have been considered as a connection between policy researchers and practitioners. The history of think tanks in Taiwan can be considered as a trace-back of the country’s political and economic path. Each think tank sets up in a specific era with specific missions reflecting on challenges and opportunities at that time. Their operations and activities are geared toward different research orientations based on their organizational missions, sponsored resources, and organizational structures. Some of them are initially established by the public sector but then run independently by external funding from grant writing. Others are funded by well-off private businessmen. Although the activities and comments of Think Tanks are supposed to be neutral and non-ideological, this does not seem to be the case in Taiwan yet. Many of the Think Tanks in Taiwan still could not be away from the influences of political parties and ideological biases.
