The Importance of National Resilience: Implications for Taiwan

July 17, 2024 • 3:00 – 4:00 pm EDT

Please join the CSIS International Security Program on Wednesday, July 17, at 3:00 p.m. EDT for a virtual conversation on the underappreciated significance of national resilience, and its implications for peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait. The discussion will examine the importance for Taiwan of strengthening its ability to withstand external coercion, natural disasters, and other threats to the normal functioning of its government, society, and economy. The conversation will also look at what lessons can be drawn from countries that prioritize civil defense and resilience, including Finland.

The event will feature CSIS experts: Dr. Seth Jones, CSIS senior vice president, Harold Brown Chair and ISP director; Dr. Daniel Byman, Warfare, Irregular Threats, and Terrorism Program senior fellow; and Dr. Bonny Lin, senior fellow for Asian Security and director of the China Power Project. Jude Blanchette, Freeman Chair in China Studies, will moderate the discussion. 

This event is made possible through general support to CSIS.
