To construct a fairer criminal justice system in Taiwan, a series of reforms have been mapped out and implemented since 1999 up to now. In place of either a Continental “inquisitorial” pattern or an Anglo-American “adversarial” pattern, Taiwan is now experimenting an alternative adversarial pattern based solidly on its own historical and cultural traditions.
