Abstract
This is a study of the relationship across the Taiwan Strait. The relationship between the Republic of China (ROC) on Taiwan and the People's Republic of China (PRC) on Mainland China is not only important to the two governments, but also is important to the world community. After an overview of the historical background and the political policy development of each side toward each other, this thesis points out the ROC and the PRC's current strategies in terms of their cross-Strait relation. Further, it examines four factors in the future development of their cross-Strait relationship; namely international politics, the PRC's stability, the ROC's public opinion of Taiwan independence, and interactions between both sides. Finally, the author provides conclusions and recommendations on how to improve the future relationship between the PRC and the ROC. The four primary recommendations are: adopting a concept of 'soft sovereignty', implementing more pragmatic consultations, increasing exchanges, and creating mutual trust.
