The epilogue describes the tumultuous events of 2014 that revealed deep unease in Taiwan and Hong Kong about relations with China: the Sunflower Movement, the Umbrella Movement, and Taiwan’s local elections. Rejecting the binary of reunification versus independence, the chapter asks what these conflicts teach us about the potential of shared intimacies to generate new paradigms for resolving old animosities and imagining alternative futures. It argues that the challenges of “as if” sovereignty and “not quite” belonging require new models of sovereignty and national inclusion.
