Strengthening U.S.-Taiwan Relations: A New Partnership for a New Age
Since the Taiwan presidential and legislative elections of January 2012, the opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) has been making a series of adjustments in order to be more competitive in the 2014 local elections and the 2016 presidential and legislative elections. Among the issues under review are the party’s policy towards China, the East Asian region, and the United States.
On June 13, the Center for Northeast Asian Policy Studies (CNAPS) at Brookings hosted an address by Su Tseng-chang, chairman of the Democratic Progressive Party. Chairman Su addressed the policy challenges the DPP faces as it prepares for the upcoming contests. Christopher Johnson, senior adviser and Freeman chair in China Studies at the Center for Strategic and International Studies provided a brief introduction. Brookings Senior Fellow and CNAPS Director Richard Bush moderated the discussion.

The lesson learned from Europe, which has borne the brunt of Russian attacks, is that Russia can be deterred but that requires leadership. For that reason, this report would have sent a much stronger message to the Trump administration if it had Republican support. As is, it is an urgent warning and a call to action, but it may fall on deaf ears.
