Since the U.S aid in the 1950’s, Taiwan has gradually experienced Modernization, especially in the areas of agricultural production and daily-food consumption. In particular, demand for soybeans has been on the rise, which was spurred by the growing demands for cooking oil and meat. The high demand for soybeans has made the Taiwanese society highly dependent on imported soybeans from the United States. However, the ever-so-often food safety crises and serious pollution in recent years have made the Taiwanese more conscious of the risks in society. As a result, discourses and actions reflecting the global agri-food system began to show up in the society, such as food sovereignty, food security, and sustainable development. In 2016, the Taiwanese government implemented policies to encourage domestic grain production, as well as encouraging farmers and businesses to rebuild domestic product-chains. An increased number of actors started to take part in the Local Grain Revival Movement.
This research is divided into two parts. In the first part , new institutionalism is employed as my research approach, as I analyze the contexts and situations of soybeans in Taiwan by studying the U.S. aid , and by employing developmental state theory and dependency theory. Moreover, discussions on grains policies from the National Agriculture Conference are also analyzed, with the aim to make policy-pathways clearer. In the second part, Multi-Level Perspective is employed as a model to analyze the future prospects of Taiwan's agriculture sector moving towards sustainable development. By doing so, marco-observation and policy advice can be provided.
