Youth see Taiwan-China relations differently: study

TAIPEI--Taiwan's government should avoid using traditional political rhetoric in doing public opinion surveys about relations with China as recent research has suggested that the younger generation sees the issue very differently from the older generation, scholars said on Saturday.

The old "unification or independence" debate on Taiwan-China relations is no longer a key interest to young people because their life experience has played a more important role in shaping their political views, a research team from National Taiwan University said.

"Those born after the late 80s tend to be more realistic and self-concerned when considering political issues," said Chang Yu-tzung, project leader and the school's associate professor on political science.

The trend was reflected in the ways his interviewees reacted to questions at various seminars, Chang explained.
