Peace and Democracy Building in East Asia
This seminar, held jointly between the Asia Programme at Chatham House and the Institute for National Policy Research, Taiwan, will examine the peace initiatives between China and Taiwan and the implications this will have for security in East Asia.
The past year has seen rapid changes in the security environment of the Asia Pacific. The relationship between China and Taiwan, in particular, has continued to improve with the completion of twelve cross-strait agreements, as well as the conclusion of the Economic Cooperation Framework Agreement. The peace initiatives between China and Taiwan will have significant implications not only for the security of the Asia-Pacific region but for Taiwan's economic, domestic and foreign affairs as well.
This event is being held as part of the 'Dialogue between the Asia-Pacific Security Forum and the UK Parliament'.
The event is off the record.
