Abstract

Using the case of the death of a 24-year old Taiwanese soldier, Hung Chung-chiu (), this article investigates the evolving phenomenon of Taiwan's new civic movement that is highly mediated and empowered by Information and Communications Technologies (icts). Examining the case of a tragic death of Army Corporal Hung, this article argues that enhanced public engagement and awareness of citizens' rights in the military will ultimately further strengthen Taiwan's civil society and will eventual help consolidate Taiwan's young democracy.
