Taiwan, Democracy, and the Rule of Law

Recorded on November 25, 2008

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium

Taiwan's democracy is a proud achievement.  Among the more serious challenges in its continuing development are legitimate questions regarding due process and appropriate judicial procedure.  Joining us for a discussion of these issues is someone who literally is a rocket scientist, Ching Jyh Shieh.  Dr. Shieh lived through a two-year process of detention, trial, and eventual acquittal on July 30 this year.  His personal experience sheds light on the seriousness of the problem, its context and what can be done to fix it.
