National Taiwan Normal University Department of History
Previous studies about the Diaoyutai Movement (protests against Japan’s claim to the Diaoyutai Islands, known as the Senkaku Islands in Japan) starting from the early 1970s usually focused on the concerns of Chinese scholars and students in America, specifically the issues of nationalism, political consciousness, or the development of the movement. They failed to examine the perspective of the Republic of China (ROC). In this paper, I try to probe the reactions between consuls and ambassadors in the US and ROC government dealing with Diaoyutai Movement. This research shows that a varieties of aspects for the government’s consideration. A strong need for the support from the U.S. and Japan, retaining their denial of People’s Republic of China (PRC) to keep the place in United Nations, to name only some, induced the government to defer its actions towards protecting Diaoyutai. Owing to the reasons mentioned above, the government chose to ignore the request from the scholars and students overseas. Having commiserated those scholars and students and disagreeing with ways of tolerant and concession, consuls kept making appeals to the government for the sake of sovereignty security, their demands were not accepted however. The story from the government side revealed an unknown infection of the Diaoyutai Movement.
