March 23rd, 2023 6:30PM -7:30PM
The trilateral relationship between the US, China, and Taiwan is a complex and delicate issue with significant geopolitical implications. In recent years, tensions have risen as China has become more assertive in its territorial claims and Taiwan has sought to assert its independence. This event, led by Professor David Bachman of the University of Washington, will explore the intersection of foreign policy, diplomacy, and security, and will discuss the future of this relationship and what it means for the region and the world.
Participants will examine the role of the United States in mediating tensions between China and Taiwan and the prospects for peaceful coexistence and cooperation between the three parties. The event will provide a forum for open and constructive dialogue, informed by rigorous analysis, and will offer valuable insights for policymakers, business leaders, and the wider public.
