Taiwan continues to demonstrate extraordinary resilience in these uncertain times. However, old and new challenges persist that could impact Taiwan’s continuing capacity to thrive. With a Chinese Communist Party Congress expected this fall and important elections looming in the United States and Taiwan in 2024, there will be a growing need for clarity on dynamics influencing U.S.-Taiwan relations, cross-Strait relations, and Taiwan domestic affairs.

On May 26, the Center for East Asia Policy Studies at the Brookings Institution hosted a public webinar featuring a conversation with top Taiwan scholars Richard Bush, Shelley Rigger, and Kharis Templeman, moderated by Brookings Senior Fellow Ryan Hass, about Taiwan’s future prospects and challenges.
