The editors and staff of Strategic Vision would like to wish our readers well as the spring season blooms upon us. The Asia-Pacific continues to undergo important developments. We hope that students and scholars in the academic community have the chance to keep up with these events. In support of that effort, we offer our latest edition of Strategic Vision.
We open this issue with Prakash Katoch, a retired Indian military general, who argues that India and Taiwan must strengthen relations to help counter China’s growing assertiveness in the region.
Next, Lt. Col. Ching-kuo Liu, a PhD student at the Institute of Strategic Studies at the ROC National Defense University, highlights the PRC’s use of united front tactics against Taiwan. Dr. Wen-hao Lu, currently the deputy director of the Research and Development Office at the ROC National Defense University, argues that Taiwan should cautiously engage the new Trump administration.
JS Bajwa, retired general with the Indian military and currently editor of Indian Defence Review, examines China’s efforts to isolate Taiwan on the international stage.
Finally, Kitsch Liao, a member of the cyber security firm T5, and Michal Thim, a fellow with the Metropolitan Society for International Affairs, examine the Trump administration’s commitment to Taiwan’s security.
We hope you enjoy this issue, and look forward to bringing you the finest analysis and reporting on the issues of importance to security in the Taiwan Strait and the Asia-Pacific region.
