Profile - Dafydd FellAbout Us

Dafydd Fell

Secretary-General and EATS Board member, 2004-2012

I am the Reader in Comparative Politics with special reference to Taiwan at the Department of Political and International Studies of the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London. I am also the Director of the SOAS Centre of Taiwan Studies.

In 2004 I helped establish the European Association of Taiwan Studies (EATS) and served as its Secretary-General until 2012.

I have published numerous articles on political parties and electioneering in Taiwan. My first book was Party Politics in Taiwan (Routledge, 2005), which analyzed party change in the first fifteen years of multi-party competition. In 2006 I co-edited What has Changed? Taiwan’s KMT and DPP Eras in Comparative Perspective (Harrassowitz), a volume examining the impact of the first change in ruling parties in Taiwan. In 2008 I edited a four volume reference collection of articles titled Politics of Modern Taiwan (Routledge). My latest book is Government and Politics in Taiwan (Rouledge, 2011) and I am now completing the second edition. I co-edited Migration to and from Taiwan (Routledge, 2013) and Social Movements in Taiwan under Ma Ying-jeou (Routledge, 2017). I am also the book series editor for the Routledge Research on Taiwan Series.
