For the past few decades, China watchers have debated the possibility of regime change in China and the prospects for democracy. China's leaders have also been studying the experiences of other countries to get ideas for political reform. How does Taiwan's experience with democracy influence thinking about China's future? In this talk, Dickson revisits his past work comparing the CCP and the KMT and also examines recent comparisons of politics in China and Taiwan.
