About this Event
1957 E St NW, Washington DC 20052
The Taiwanese people will soon vote in presidential elections in January 2024. Taiwan’s vibrant democracy means that there is no certainty to electoral outcomes. Which players and parties should we be paying attention to this upcoming election season and what are the foreign policy stakes involved? The Sigur Center for Asian Studies is pleased to invite you to a discussion on these key questions: “Cross-Strait Relations and Policy Debates,” “Perspectives on Economic Strategies and Foreign Policy Implications,” and “China's Rising Disinformation Capabilities and Impact.” This event features three esteemed guest speakers: Shirley Lin, Founder and Chair of the Center for Asia-Pacific Resilience and Innovation at the University of Virginia, Kevin Sheives, Deputy Director for the International Forum for Democratic Studies at the National Endowment for Democracy, and Riley Walters, senior fellow at the Hudson Institute specializing in international economics and national security. The event will take place on Wednesday, November 15 from 12:00 to 2:00pm. There will be lunch from 12:00 to 12:30pm and the discussion will take place from 12:30 to 2:00pm. We hope you can join us for such an important discussion on the future of Taiwan and the region as a whole.
