Webinar: China, The U.S., and Taiwan: The World’s Most Dangerous Nuclear Flashpoint

October 27, 2021 @ 7:00 PM 8:30 PM

As tensions between the U.S. and China have ratcheted up, Taiwan has emerged as a major flashpoint in world affairs. China has threatened to invade Taiwan if it declares independence, while American officials have suggested that such a move could trigger U.S. military intervention. Caught in the middle are the people of Taiwan, who prize their democratic system but fear being drawn into a superpower conflict. This panel will examine the roots of the Taiwan dilemma, the risks of a U.S.-China nuclear war over Taiwan, and alternatives to conflict. Panel includes Professor Zhiqun Zhu of Bucknell University, Brian Chee Shing-Hioe of New Bloom in Taiwan, and Michael Klare of the Arms Control Association and the Committee for a Sane U.S.-China Policy. Professor Avi Chomsky of Salem State University will host the webinar.
