As tensions between the U.S. and China have ratcheted up, Taiwan has emerged as a major flashpoint in world affairs. China has threatened to invade Taiwan if it declares independence, while American officials have suggested that such a move could trigger U.S. military intervention - igniting a three-way conflict that might easily escalate into a nuclear conflagration. Caught in the middle of all this are the people of Taiwan themselves. This panel will examine the roots of the Taiwan dilemma, the risks of a U.S.-China war over Taiwan, and alternatives to conflict.
