Chinese Interference in Taiwan's 2024 Elections and Lessons Learned

In January 2024, Taiwan elected William Lai as its next president, ushering in an unprecedented third consecutive term of Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) leadership. Throughout the elections, China employed a wide range of tools—including military intimidation, media interference, and economic and diplomatic measures—in an effort to shape public opinion in Taiwan. China’s efforts to sway the election warrant study by Taiwan, the United States, and others to draw lessons for how to limit Chinese influence activities.

To discuss these issues, the CSIS China Power Project is pleased to host a panel featuring five experts from Taiwan: Eve Chiu, CEO and editor-in-chief of the Taiwan FactCheck Center (TFC); Billion Lee, co-founder of the open-source fact-checking AI chatbot, Cofacts; Wen-Ping Liu, member of the Research Committee of the Ministry of Justice Investigation Bureau (MJIB); Shun-Ching Yang, analyst lead of the Digital Intelligence team at Doublethink Lab; Chihhao Yu, software engineer, information designer, and co-director of Taiwan Information Environment Research Center (IORG).

Dr. Bonny Lin, director of the China Power Project and senior fellow for Asian Security at CSIS, will moderate the conversation.

This event is made possible through the generous support of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office in the United States (TECRO).
