On 25th March 2022, the TAP project leader Dr. Josie-Marie Perkuhn visited the TAP team at the Ruhr University Bochum. They discussed the practicabili-ty of possible databases and the best way to realise them. In light of the Russian invasion, the two postdocs reviewed the concerned debate among observers and how this might impact the situa-tion across the Taiwan-Strait. As a result of this meeting, they pre-pared for a contribution that was later published at Taiwan Insight. Present were Prof. Dr. Christine Moll-Murata, Dr. Chien Hung-yi, Dr. Josie-Marie Perkuhn and Tam-ina Renner.
