学术界对于台湾成为联合国会员国的申请，甚至这举动的徒劳之处，的讨论正进行的热火朝天。很多学者也认定台湾的处境非常特殊，与其他国家与众不同。然而，此论文可证明事实不是如此。以巴勒斯坦与科索沃为比较的案例，我们可发现这三国家的处境的相似之处。更何况，如以文化霸权为切入点，我们会发现其实与其他论文的结论相反，台湾缺乏文化霸权才是在联合国失败的主要原因之一。The topic of Taiwan and its application to become a member of the United Nations has been one that has been discussed at length throughout the world. Many scholars have also concluded that the situation that Taiwan faces is unique, and unlike any other country. However, through this paper, I would prove that this indeed is not true. Using Palestine and Kosovo as a comparative study, one would notice the intricate similarities between the three case studies. Furthermore, using the concept of Cultural Hegemony, one would come to realize that despite the many factors that scholars have identified to be problems behind Taiwan’s failure in their United Nations application, this lack in Cultural Hegemony is actually a key factor that is lacking in Taiwan. Especially in comparison to the successes of Palestine and Kosovo with the failures of Taiwan, it is clear that this lack in Cultural Hegemony is not one to be underestimated, and might well be the main obstacle that Taiwan has to face in their bid for international recognition.
