Taiwan’s Future Amid a 'New Cold War' Between the United States and China 

China and the United States appeared headed for a new Cold War, in the view of some experts. Trade, military and diplomatic tensions are mounting. Taiwan, the self-governing island of 23 million people, is caught in between. An increasingly aggressive Beijing is projecting military power in the South China Sea and conducting war games near Taiwan. President Donald Trump’s administration has increased support for Taiwan above what most previous U.S. governments have offered. Will Beijing resort to actual military action to force Taiwan to join what it considers the motherland? Will Trump’s actions increase the chances of stability or conflict? 


Andrew Nathan, a professor at Columbia University and one of America’s foremost experts on China and its foreign policy.

Russell Hsiao, executive director of the nonprofit think tank Global Taiwan Institute in Washington, which seeks to improve Taiwan’s international relations.

Richard Bernstein, formerly based in China for TIME magazine and a veteran of several foreign postings for The New York Times. He is also author of numerous books, including The Coming Conflict with China (1997).

Moderated by business journalist and author, William J. Holstein, former Beijing bureau chief for United Press International.
