Fwd: Roundtable Discussion: Challenging Hegemony: Taiwan the Baltic and the EU (11/30 PT, 12/1 TW)

Title: Challenging Hegemony: Taiwan, the Baltic, and the EU

Description: Lithuania's recent decision to accept a Taiwan Representative Office has created outsized reverberations across Europe, Asia, and the world. With the decision to utilize the name "Taiwan," Lithuania has drawn the ire of the People's Republic of China and thrust Taiwan into the center of European Union politics. Why did Lithuania and the Baltic countries decide to develop closer relations with Taiwan at the cost of alienating China? What does this entail for the future of European relations with Taiwan and China? And what does this shift mean for Taiwan's international status and future? This virtual event will take place on November 30th 7pm Pacific Time // December 1 11am Taiwan Time. You will receive an invitation link via your email
