歷史發展


At the request of Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Republic of China (Taiwan) in 1994, the Institute of International Relations (IIR) endeavored to create opportunities for the government to participate regional dialogues between think-tanks in the Asia-Pacific region. IIR officially set up the Secretariat of the R.O.C. Commission of Council for Security Cooperation in the Asia Pacific (known as CSCAP Taiwan) in 1996. CSCAP Taiwan has actively integrated professionals and resources in related areas to participate in second track diplomatic dialogues in the Asia Pacific region. Also, it promotes bilateral and multilateral security mechanism. CSCAP Taiwan undertakes bilateral dialogue in cooperation with its counterparts in the U.S., Japan, Vietnam, Singapore, Australia and China. What’s more, it has gradually interacted with CSCAP India. CSCAP Taiwan participates actively in major CSCAP’s events in order to increase its interactions with regional professionals in international security and to participate in regional affairs on security cooperation. 
 
 

Inspired by PECC (Pacific Economic Cooperation Conference) and other non-governmental organizations’ experiences, CSCAP organizes conferences and receive participants such as professionals from industries, academic circles and government officials (in their own names). In this way, regional security issues can be discussed through a non-official channel. In addition, CSCAP plays a role of Track II in ASEAN Regional Forum (ARF). Many of the topics of CSCAP’s study groups are suggested to be references for ARF, which emphasize the importance of CSCAP. 
 
 

For a country like ROC (Taiwan), facing difficulties with participating in international organizations in spite of its initiatives, CSCAP’s non-official inclination is indeed an important factor for Taiwanese authorities to involve in the international community.
