In 1994, the Clinton Administration completed a comprehensive interagency review of U.S. policy toward Taiwan, the first of its kind launched by an administration since the U.S. shifted recognition from Taipei to Beijing in 1979. This review resulted in important policy adjustments in line with U.S. national security interests toward Taiwan. As we approach the 20th anniversary of the Taiwan Policy Review (TPR), it is important to assess U.S. policy since the TPR and assess where U.S. policy is heading in the future. Join us for a discussion on the history and significance of the TPR and the future of U.S.-Taiwan relations.
