The U.S.-Japan Alliance And The Taiwan Factor

For over a half-century, Taiwan has both played an active role and been a passive factor in U.S.-Japan alliance considerations and it will remain a significant concern for both US and Japanese strategists well into the 21st century. As China settles into its new leadership structure, as Japan's deepens its military and naval participation in the War on Terror, as North Korea's nuclear and missile programs challenge the existing strategic calculations in Northeast Asia, as Taiwan's national identity separate from China crystallizes, and as East Asian economies broaden their trade, financial and investment integration, a discussion of Taiwan's role in the alliance becomes especially important. In this context, we would like to invite you to a public briefing on this timely topic at the close of a two-day Trilateral workshop in Washington, D.C. sponsored by Taiwan ThinkTank, the Okazaki Institute and The Heritage Foundation.
