The Impact of Domestic Politics on the US-TW-PRC Relationship

December 8, 2022 • 9:00 – 10:00 am EST

In October 2022, Chinese President Xi Jinping secured an unprecedented third term in power and appointed close confidantes to key Chinese Communist Party and government positions. In early November, the United States held its midterm elections that resulted in Republican control of the House and Democratic control of the Senate. In late November, Taiwan also held its local elections. Given these domestic dynamics, the future of the relationship between the United States, Taiwan, and the PRC remains uncertain. What lies ahead? What impact will these elections have?

Please join the CSIS China Power Project on Thursday, December 8 from 9:00 am – 10:00 am ET for a virtual event discussing the future of US-Taiwan-PRC relations. The discussion will feature: Mr. Vincent Chao, ​​​​​​​Adjunct Fellow (Non-resident) with the Asia Program and the China Power Project at CSIS; Dr. Thomas J. Christensen, James T. Shotwell Professor of International Relations and Director of the China and the World Program at Columbia University; Dr. Shelley Rigger, Brown Professor of Asian Studies at Davidson College; and Mr. Eric Sayers, Managing Director and Indo-Pacific Practice Lead at Beacon Global Strategies, and Nonresident Fellow at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI). The conversation will be moderated by Dr. Bonny Lin, Director of the China Power Project and Senior Fellow for Asian Security at CSIS.

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