Austin Horng-En Wang (Political Science) published a co-authored op-ed, "What Do People in Taiwan Think About Their Military?" in The Diplomat. This article traces and analyzes recent polls in Taiwan regarding public opinion on military spending and training. The results suggest that the increasing cross-strait tension had shifted the public opinion toward supporting higher sending and longer training with better quality. The result is opposite to the previous belief that military spending is an unwelcome topic in Taiwan.
