Love Boat: Taiwan looks at the Taiwan Love Boat, one of the longest running summer programs in the world, where college-aged Taiwanese Americans get closer to their history, their culture and each other. A recent New York Times article lauded Taiwan as a new bastion of free speech in Asia, but because of the ongoing cold war between China and Taiwan, Taiwan’s status as a sovereign nation is anything but secure. Love Boat: Taiwan explores the ways that this unique “soft power” program advances the cause of Taiwan around the world.
