New Opportunities and Challenges for Taiwan's Security - INSS and RAND Collaboration
"Cross-Strait Relations: New Opportunities and Challenges for Taiwan's Security"

RAND and the Institute for National Security Studies
On November 7, 2009, the RAND Corporation, the Institute for National Strategic Studies at National Defense University, and the Council for Advanced Policy Studies in Taipei held the conference "Cross-Strait Relations: New Opportunities and Challenges for Taiwan's Security," which brought together leading experts on political and military issues from both the United States and Taiwan.
Cross-Strait Relations consists of leading experts from the United States and Taiwan who examine a range of political, economic, and military aspects of the relationship between mainland China and Taiwan likely to shape the challenges and opportunities for Taiwan's security over the next decade.
The chapters are drawn from papers presented at the November 2009 CAPS-RAND-NDU Conference, held at National Defense University in Washington, D.C. The volume presents revised versions of the most policy-relevant conference presentations, covering a range of topics related to four broad issues: the opportunities created by improved cross-Strait relations and what further progress will be supported by domestic politics on both sides of the Strait; the potential for confidence-building measures (CBMs) to play a role in managing or reducing cross-Strait tensions; the military balance and the impact of changes in key Chinese and Taiwanese military capabilities; and the potential impact of positive trends in cross-Strait political relations on PLA modernization.
It is expected that the analysis in this volume will contribute significantly to understanding the cross-Strait security dynamics.
