The Institute of Security and Development Policy invites to the following webinar.
Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the rapidly growing tensions in the Taiwan Strait have refocused attention on the possibility of China pursuing a forceful unification with Taiwan. Until recently, the potential costs of a war with the world’s largest superpower stopped any serious consideration of provoking one. Now, however, Chinese drills in the surrounding waters, including simulated precision strikes to hit strategic targets on the island and organizing advances around the island to test an all-round encirclement and deterrence posture, are indications of China’s intentions to pursue its goal in a way that would severely harm regional peace and security. Accordingly, deterring a PLA invasion of Taiwan has become a top priority for Taipei and Washington alike.
