Online discussion: US-Taiwan Relations under Biden
March 18, 2021 - 16:00-17:30
- The University of Nottingham’s Taiwan Studies Programme presents an online discussion, US-Taiwan Relations under Biden by Prof James Lin, University of Washington
What can we expect of US-Taiwan relations under President Biden after a tumultuous Trump administration and increasing aggression from China? How will recent changes to the US’s Taiwan stance affect long term relations? And how will Taiwan’s expectations of US support be affected by the new administration? This discussion will offer a few suggestions on how Biden will approach Taiwan based on a long, historical view of US-Taiwan relations and the structural issues that will define a Biden foreign policy.
James Lin is a historian of modern Taiwan and Assistant Professor of International Studies at the University of Washington, where he also serves as the Associate Chair of the Taiwan Studies Program. His upcoming book project examines the history of Taiwan’s agrarian development, including its missions to Asia, Africa, and Latin America from the 1950s onward.
