Ever since the end of the Second World War, Taiwan has been placed under the sovereignty of the Peopleâs Republic of China. The Taiwan Movement for Independence pleads for obtaining the factual independence of the country from the mainland. The movement is not the only organization that acts as such, but also so does FAPA Europe or the Formosan Association for Public Affairs Europe. This organization has the main mission, ever since 2007, to promote the sovereignty of Taiwan on the European continent and also across the world. In particular, FAPA Europe had organized its efforts as to garner international support for the right of the people living in Taiwan to determine the status of their own country, to protect its sovereignty by promoting security and peace in the area and to promote the international status of Taiwan. This meant mainly seeking the full participation of this country in the international community.
