Looking Ahead: Taiwan and the Indo-Pacific Region

event banner for Taiwan Roundtable on Taiwan in the Indo-Pacific

As new cooperative measures take shape in the Indo-Pacific through minilateral and multilateral mechanisms led by the United States, what can Taiwan do to integrate further, together with partners or through its own efforts? What are the most pressing challenges in the region and how is Taiwan preparing to meet them? How do the U.S. and major European powers view Taiwan as a partner in their Indo-Pacific strategies?

The Sigur Center and the North American Taiwan Studies Association is co-hosting a hybrid in-person and virtual Roundtable event – with an in-person dinner reception at the Elliott School of International Affairs – to explore these questions with policy and expert views from Taiwan and the United States.

This Roundtable is free and open to the public and media. A recording of the Roundtable will be made publicly available in the days following the event. Additional support for this event is provided by GW East Asia National Resource Center and the Taiwan Education & Research Program.
