WED: Zoom – What should U.S. policy toward Taiwan be?

March 29 @ 7:00 PM 8:30 PM

A Panel Discussion with Zhiqun Zhu, Mike Mochizuki, and Michael Klare.

What should U.S. policy toward Taiwan be? Can U.S.-Chinese military operations and tensions over Taiwan be defused? If so, how?
With the U.S. and China engaged in provocative military operations in and near Taiwan or miscalculation could trigger a catastrophic U.S.-Chinese war, very possibly nuclear, in which other nations, including Japan and South Korea, would be involved.

The Biden Administration and a confrontational Congress have undermined the “One China” policy which since 1979 has served as the foundation of U.S.-China relations since 1979. The planned visit of Taiwanese President Tsai to the United States in late March and early April is certain to further exacerbate U.S.-Chinese tensions. Meanwhile, in closing China’s National People’s Congress earlier this month, President Xi Jinping stressed the need for “national reunification” with Taiwan as the “essence of national rejuvenation,” making Taiwan’s relationship with China a primary issue for his third term in office.

Other ways are possible. Join China scholars Zhiqun Zhu, Mike Mochizuki, and Michael Klare in exploring alternative U.S. policies that we can press on Congress and the Biden Administration.
