About the Event

Japan's posture toward Taiwan underwent significant change in 2021. Through both statements and actions, Japan's government has signaled that it has a vested interest in Taiwan's security and is interested in increasing its cooperation with Taiwan. This panel will discuss Japan's evolving Taiwan policy, highlight new forms of cooperation we may see in the years ahead, and explain why it matters.
