Chi-hung Wei

Chi-hung Wei (韋奇宏) holds a PhD in political science from the University of Florida. His research has focused on the use of norms and economic statecraft by both great powers and small states, with a special focus on the U.S.-China-Taiwan triangle. His dissertation, entitled “From Sanctions to Engagement: Norms and U.S. Economic Statecraft toward China after Tiananmen,” examined the evolution of liberal discourses in U.S. policy toward China. One shortened version of it has been published in Millennium: Journal of International Studies. During the CWP fellowship period, he will revise the dissertation for publication as a book. His work has also been published in International Relations of the Asia-Pacific, The China Quarterly, Asian Security, and International Political Science Review.
