Changing dynamics in geopolitics: Implications for Taiwan

In person attendance only, Registration is essential at https://forms.office.com/e/QrELdJXNLL taking place at the University of Nottingham, UK.

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February 2022 shook the world. Subsequent discussion focused on whether the invasion would embolden aggressive, authoritarian regimes to invade other democracies. China’s military threats against Taiwan, and its heightened rhetoric over the island, are a case in point. Almost two years later, the war in Ukraine continues unabated, while military conflicts and crises proliferate around the world, the most recent being that between Israel and Hamas.

How can we understand such evolving geopolitical challenges within a global context, and what do they represent for the future world order—and its stability—in the Indo-Pacific region?

Against the backdrop of China’s continued threats against Taiwan, especially in light of the upcoming presidential elections scheduled for January 2024, this joint conference invites scholars to provide different perspectives from Europe, the UK, the US, and the Asia-Pacific region on geopolitical security (including conventional, cyber, economic, and border security), as well as other threats faced by democratic systems.
