Strengthening U.S.-Taiwan Defense Relations

This roundtable explores the components of contemporary U.S.-Taiwan defense relations and the path to a deeper partnership. Authors Shirley Kan, Michael Mazza, Patrick Cronin, and Peter Mattis examine congressional support for Taiwan, the policy significance of recent National Defense Authorization Acts, the Trump administration’s evolving Taiwan policy, and ways in which the United States and Taiwan can resist China's efforts to both delegitimize the government on Taiwan and prevent closer defense ties.
