UNDER PRESSURE: TAIWAN, THE UNITED STATES, AND CHINA
November 12, 2020
11:00am to 12:00pm

An installment of the Edgerton Series on Responding to a Rising China, on what an increasingly forceful China means for the United States and Taiwan. Open to the public.

Background:

China is getting tough on Taiwan, and the U.S. response will have consequences that reach far into the future. To date, Taiwan has intercepted more than twice as many Chinese warplanes in 2020 than it did in the whole of 2019. China’s increasingly assertive posture towards the island has been assumed against the backdrop of deteriorating U.S.-Sino relations, and growing U.S. support for Taiwan. As Beijing continues to step up its military activities against the island, it is creating the conditions for crisis and risking decades of peace. Join us as we explore what an increasingly forceful China means for the United States and Taiwan, what options are available to the island, and how the United States should respond.

Speakers for this event will be announced soon.

*Members of the public may register here.*
