Planning for Coalition Defense of Taiwan

Grant Year: 2022


Frederick Kagan and Dan Blumenthal will develop an approach to counter an effort by China to coerce or compel Taiwan to unify with the mainland. They will identify and analyze Chinese and Western sources to understand the changing nature of the Chinese threat; undertake research and meet with regional experts; host working group meetings; and run war game exercises using the planning exercise method employed by the U.S. military. The project’s findings will be presented in a series of reports, briefings, and publications.
