Reporting Trip to Taipei for Taiwan Presidential Election 2020

01/2020

To provide students an opportunity to cover the Taiwan Presidential Election and apply what they learned from class into practice, the School organised a reporting trip to Taipei from 9-12 January 2020. Led by Ms. Eva Chan, Ms. Emily Owen and Mr. Leung Ho Yiu, 27 students from two undergraduate programmes including four practicums and one taught postgraduate programme participated in the reporting trip.

With the help of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office and the Institute of International Relations at National Chengchi University, the group visited the headquarter of the Democratic Progressive Party of Taiwan and the People First Party, National Policy Foundation – a think tank affiliated with the Kuomintang Party, Election Study Center at National Chengchi University, and Chang Yung-Fa Foundation, and went to the two rivals’ final campaign rallies.

In order to have a more comprehensive picture of the election from both sides – Tsai Ing-wen and her main contender Han Kuo-yu, students from U-beat breaking news split into two teams: one team stayed in Taipei to cover Tsai Ing-wen’s final rally; the other followed Han Kuo-yu to Kaohsiung where he was elected as the mayor to see how he mobilised his supporters. Other practicum students also worked around the clock to do street interviews in Taipei and try to get more first-hand stories for their reports.
