Taiwan has been an economic and democratic success story for decades. Today, it faces challenges at home—including an aging society and a changing economy—and abroad, including China’s long-term agenda of incorporating Taiwan on terms similar to those applied in Hong Kong, and heavy dependence on the United States for its security. Richard Bush’s new book, Difficult Choices: Taiwan’s Quest for Security and the Good Life assesses these questions and offers suggestions for Taiwan and U.S. policymakers. Join us for a discussion with the author, moderated by FPRI Asia Program Director Jacques deLisle.
