Europe is in the middle of the biggest security crisis of this century. Estonia – amongst other Central and Eastern European countries – has been warning its allies and neighbours about this threat for decades.
How is the conflict in Ukraine perceived in Taiwan and in the wider Indo-Pacific region? What would a conflict in the Taiwan Strait mean for the global rules-based world order? What are Russia’s and the CCP’s long-standing strategic goals, and what role do Ukraine and Taiwan play in them? How has the CCP used its influence operations to shape policies in Taiwan and the US? And finally, will the “change through trade” strategy – already proved inefficient with regards to Russia – work with China?
These and other questions will be answered at the webinar by the leading experts from Estonia, Taiwan, and the US.
