The government of Communist China has insisted – and the U.S. government has officially acknowledged since 1979 – that Taiwan is part of China. Does that mean international law imposes no limits on Chinese coercion or intimidation of Taiwan? Do U.S. international agreements in the region require (or prohibit) U.S. military aid to Taiwan in the event of open conflict with China? Would the President need authorization from Congress to deploy U.S. forces there if conflict seems imminent? Our panelists will discuss the way these questions are likely to be viewed by other governments as well as by policymakers in Washington.
