The risk of a confrontation between China and Taiwan is growing. Domestic politics in China, political trends in Taiwan, and changing U.S. policy toward Taiwan are increasing the risk of a cross-strait crisis in the coming months. Careful U.S. diplomacy is needed to reduce the risk of a crisis or to mitigate the consequences should one emerge.As part of the Center for Preventive Action’s Flashpoint Roundtable Meeting Series, please join us to discuss the risk of a crisis across the Taiwan Strait and what U.S. policymakers can do to prevent it. With speakers Michael S. Chase, senior political scientist at the RAND Corporation, and Oriana Skylar Mastro, assistant professor of security studies at the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University, this meeting will take place on Tuesday, March 12, from 12:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. at CFR’s Washington office.If you have any questions, please contact Jennifer Wilson at 202.509.8463 or email@example.com.
