Taiwan and the U.S. Pivot to Asia: New Realities in the Region?

February 26, 2013 // 3:30pm5:30pm

As the United States rebalances its diplomatic and military focus toward Asia, some analysts have voiced concern about what a greater U.S. presence in the region might mean for cross-Strait relations. While ties between China and Taiwan have improved in recent years, will the U.S. pivot toward Asia shape the further evolution of cross-Strait relations? Will other Taiwanese interests be impacted by the rebalance?  Could Chinese uneasiness about the rebalance work to Taiwan’s detriment?  From Washington’s perspective, how does Taiwan fit into the pivot?
