On January 17, the Center for Northeast Asian Policy Studies at Brookings (CNAPS) and the Freeman Chair in China Studies at the Center for Strategic and International Studies hosted a seminar analyzing the results of Taiwan’s January 14 presidential and legislative elections. The outcomes of the elections remain uncertain, and the results will have impact not only on the daily lives of Taiwan’s people, but also on relations with China and the United States.
The discussion featured speakers from across Taiwan’s political spectrum, as well as experts from the United States, China, and the United Kingdom. Panelists analyzed the results of the election, identified pressing policy issues for the winning presidential candidate, and explored how the results may affect cross-Strait relations and the United States.
After each panel, speakers took audience questions.
