    To further facilitate knowledge exchange between government and academia and to deepen the academia-industry collaboration, the Ministry of Justice Investigation Bureau (MJIB) hosted "Cross-Strait Relations International Symposium 2021: The Development of Current Cross-strait Status: Challenges and Opportunities in the Taiwan Strait in 2021 & Beyond" at the MJIB on Wednesday, May 12, 2021. The symposium, conducted in English, focused on the cross-strait situation and discussed its relevant issues.

    The international academic symposium, co-hosted by Honorary Professor Chiang Hism-Li of Fo Guang University and Director Liu Wen-Ping of the MJIB Cross-Strait Status Research and Analysis Division, was open for attendees to discuss and exchange their opinions. In particular, Dr. William Anthony Stanton, Vice President of National Yang Ming Chiao Tung University and former Director of the American Institute in Taiwan, was invited to deliver a keynote speech. Moreover, many domestic and international scholars and experts attended this symposium to present their English papers regarding the cross-strait situation and the development of crime, including Visiting Scholar Dr. Margaret K. Lewis of Institutum Iurisprudentiae Academia Sinica; Associate Professor Dr. Yavor A. Kostadinov of Ming Chuan University International Affairs and Diplomacy Program; Senior Non-resident Fellow J. Michael Cole, one of three fellows of the Taiwan Studies Programme, University of Nottingham, UK, and two investigators, Wei Emilia and Yang Tsung-Hsin from the MJIB.

    In addition to the many international scholars, a total of nearly 70 attendees participated in the symposium including officials from the representative offices in Taiwan such as Japan, South Korea, Australia, Israel, Vietnam, India, Singapore, Mongolia, and Papua New Guinea, as well as officials from the Mainland Affairs Council, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the National Security Bureau. It is expected that this innovative symposium hosted by the MJIB, conducted entirely in English, can be an effective knowledge exchange platform between the public sector and international academic community. It has a profound meaning for our public sector to mesh with the trends in academia regarding the practices of cracking down on crimes.
