Reshaping the Taiwan Strait: Are There Realistic Alternatives to "One China"?
Recorded on September 27, 2005
Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium
Washington's "One China" policy has long isolated Taiwan from
the international community and fostered
the misconception that the United States accepts Beijing's claim
to sovereignty over Taiwan's people and territory. In 2004, The
Heritage Foundation took a retrospective look at the flaws in a
"One China" policy. This follow-on conference will address how the
"One China" policy might realistically be changed or adjusted in
the context of America's strategic commitment to the global
expansion of democracy. Join us as our distinguished scholars take
a deeper look into U.S. strategic interests in Taiwan and the
Western Pacific and explore alternative policy options.
