Curriculum Vitae

Yung-Yung Chang holds a PhD awarded by the Department of Political and Social Sciences, the Freie Universität Berlin, Germany, with the topic “East Asian Regionalism: Power, Interests, and Ideas. A Critical Assessment of ASEAN’s role in the Evolution of East Asian Regionalism”. In her doctoral work, she designed the supply-demand framework to argue and explain ASEAN’s soft but strong influence (in comparison to China and Japan) in the East Asian integration process. Her research interests are very broad and interdisciplinary, which include regional integration in East Asia, global governance, China’s external relations, and Chinese studies. Yung-Yung holds a dual master’s degree from the LSE (MSc in Economic History) and Universität Wien (MA in Global Studies) and a B.A. in International Relations from National Taiwan University.
Prior to working as Research Fellow for the IKGF, Yung-Yung worked as a Research Specialist at the Higher Education Evaluation and Accreditation Council of Taiwan (HEEACT). She has presented papers at conferences both at home and abroad, organized different workshops and conferences and has been invited as a guest speaker (lecturer) at FuJen University (Taiwan), Tartu University (Estonia) and the Free University of Berlin (Germany).
