This article examines Taiwan's international space when the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) held the reins of government by using indicators derived from Beijing's discourse on "one-China principle" in its foreign relations with various states over the world, in an attempt to provide a relatively objective criterion for assessing the diplomatic performance of the DPP administration. This article also reviews the results of the debates in the UN General Committee concerning the proposals for Taiwan's UN membership over the years, to illustrate the influence that China exerts on Taiwan's international participation. This author points out that China enjoys legal and institutional powers which facilitate the proliferation of its discourse on one-China principle in the international society. Responding to DPP's diplomatic offensive, China intensified pressure on Taiwan, which resulted in the dwindling of Taiwan's diplomatic space. Visioning into the future, Beijing may compromise its position to stabilize Taiwan's incumbent President Ma Ying-jeou's diplomatic approach; but under the one-China principle the enlargement in Taiwan's diplomatic space is very likely to simultaneously duplicate Taiwan's status as a non-sovereign entity in the international society; that is the greatest pitfall associated with Ma's "Workable diplomacy".
