Abstract

The debate on the possible unification of Mainland China and Taiwan has often been assessed from the economic perspective, which is insufficient since unification entails not only the integration of two economies but political, social and technological integration of two territories. Using the Box Negotiation Diagram (BND), this paper expands the scope of the study on China-Taiwan unification through a multidisciplinary approach encompassing the political, economic, social and technological perspectives. Given the huge imbalanced points of unification drawn from our analysis, we observed more divergence than convergence hence, hinging the possibility of unification of serious negotiation.
