Cross-Strait Relations

Exploring and analyzing cross-Strait relations through in-depth dialogue, regular events and frequent publications.

The CSIS China Power Project engages in regular and sustained dialogue with officials and scholars on both sides of the Taiwan Strait. Our aim is to enhance understanding among the US, Taiwan and China through in-depth dialogue, regular public and private events, and frequent publications on cross-Strait relations. Our staff leads an annual delegation to Taiwan and Mainland China to explore and analyze various policy-relevant topics including, cross-Strait confidence building measures, Taiwan’s participation in the international community, Taiwan’s elections, US-Taiwan relations, Taiwan’s maritime policies, and cross-Strait relations.
