Join us Thursday, Aug. 23, from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., at CSIS (room 114) for a talk entitled The New Southbound Policy and U.S.-Taiwan Relations: Signaling Foreign Policy Self-Restraint in the Taiwan Strait. Our speaker is Dr. Ping-Kuei Chen, assistant professor in the Department of Diplomacy at National Chengchi University. The Tsai administration has made the Southbound Policy a pillar of their foreign policy, aiming to strengthen ties with countries in Southeast, South, and Austral-Asia. This will be a helpful lecture for anyone wanting to better understand Cross-Straight relations, the “Free and Open Indo-Pacific,” and the future of Asia-Pacific security.
The talk and subsequent discussion will be entirely in Chinese, as usual.
