The more that Beijing has represented the Taiwanese as being Chinese, the less the people of Taiwan have identified as such. Entwined with democratic elections and free speech, Taiwan’s own unique identity, which blends the island’s indigenous and colonial histories involving Japan, China, The Netherlands and Spain, has only strengthened. "The Taiwanese have been pursuing self-determination since the 1920s and those political aspirations are stronger now than ever," says University of Tasmania lecturer Mark Harrison, a Taiwan expert.
