Chinese and Russian hybrid threats – democratic resilience in frontline states


The joint event of the Association for Sustainable Democracy, Political Capital and Taipei Representative Office


Date: 23. November 2022. 18:00-19:30

Location: Budapest, Nádor street 15, Room N15, 105 – in-person with online streaming

Language: English



Taiwan had been under constant miliary pressure from mainland China for decades, but recent development in the Taiwan straits has increased these pressures. How can Taiwan maintain a healthy democracy against all odds? How can democracies best handle these pressures and increase resilience? What role does youth participation and civil activism play in the sustainability of democracy?

In this public event we plan to discuss the experiences and best practices of Taiwan in building and sustaining a resilient democracy, while being a target of constant grey-zone operations.
