Chips, China, And Taiwan’s Security
A Report From The Field
In late August of this year, a dozen scholars from the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, and the Asia Society Center on U.S.-China Relations arrived in Taipei for a long-planned post-pandemic research trip. But the visit was no ordinary one. Coming on the heels of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s high-profile congressional visit—and the PRC's aggressive military reaction—the delegation found their hosts grappling with what has been called the Fourth Taiwan Strait Crisis. This virtual session captured reflections from members of that diverse delegation on what they heard over a week of consultations with Taiwan’s political leaders, security community, domestic think tanks, and leading semiconductor firms.
