藉由探討臺灣社會對陸生之間的交互影響，本研究試圖發掘臺灣是否能在政治與軍事外這兩條道路之外，能夠開創第三種不同的道路與大陸對話，除藉此改善兩岸間的關係、是否在交互對話的過程中，也能反省政策的矛盾，並發展更有效率的治理模式。 Taiwan began accepting the university admissions of Chinese students in 2011. Between 2011 ~ 2016, the number of enrolled Chinese students in Taiwan grew to 7,813 people.
This paper will start by examining the self-orientation of the Taiwanese society from the perspective of the civil society in Taiwan and policies on Chinese students to determine the current consensus in the Taiwanese civil society. The background to the policies on Chinese students formulated by the Taiwanese government will then be used to establish the current official attitude to Chinese students in Taiwan and future prospects.
Chinese students who have been living in Taiwan for more than three years will also be interviewed using the in-depth interview method to understand their life in Taiwan as well as their views and experiences of Taiwanese society.
By exploring the interactions between Taiwanese society and Chinese students, this paper attempts to see if Taiwan can open a third and different channel for communication with China outside of military and politics. In addition to improving cross-strait relations, such interactions may offer a way to rethink conflicts in policy and lead to the development of a more efficient governance model.
