The Political Warfare Bureau (GPWB; Chinese: 國防部政治作戰局; pinyin: Guófángbù Zhèngzhì Zuòzhànjú) is the affiliated authority of the Ministry of National Defense (MND) of the Republic of China (Taiwan) that is responsible for all the political warfare affairs of the Republic of China Armed Forces.
Since its establishment in 1924, the Whampoa Military Academy had already set up its political work system. In April 1950, the academy reformed the political work system by changing the Political Staff Bureau to Political Department. In May 1951, it was renamed General Political Department and in August 1963 as General Political Warfare Department with some modifications to its structural agencies. On 1 March 2002, the Organizational Ordinance of the General Political Warfare Bureau was put into performance.
