Noon Seminar Series

When: Apr 18 2018 - 12:00pm until Apr 18 2018 - 1:00pm
Where: John A. Burns Hall, Room 3121/3125, East-West Center

For the past decade Taiwan has been the quiet East Asia “flashpoint” compared to North Korea and the East China Sea.  But the situation that previously produced three Taiwan Strait crises remains unresolved, and with China newly emboldened under Xi Jinping and the independence-leaning party in power in Taipei, a fourth crisis may be brewing.  This seminar will review and update the major trends affecting Taiwan’s national security, including the policies of China and the United States, and assess the prospects for Taiwan retaining its autonomy against Chinese pressure to politically unify with the People’s Republic of China.
