The U.S. Election and U.S.-Taiwan-China Relations Special Lecture Event at Yale University

NEW HAVEN - Following the election of Barack Obama as the next U.S. president, the question of what the next four years may bring to the relationship between China and Taiwan and how the next U.S. president may influence triangular relations among the two nations and America, will be the subject of a discussion by cross-Strait expert Prof. Lin Chong-Pin and Prof. Pierre F. Landry of Yale University’s Department of Political Science at 4 p.m. Nov. 19 at Rosenfeld Hall, Yale University, 109 Grove St.

Those interested in East Asian studies and U.S.-Taiwan-China relations are likely to enjoy the academic exchange of views, organizers said. A reception will follow the lecture.

Lin, shown, will present his views in lecture form, and Landry will follow with a Q&A session. Lin is former deputy minister of Taiwan’s Ministry of National Defense and the former vice chairman and spokesman for the Mainland Affairs Council. He now teaches at the Graduate Institute of International Affairs and Strategic Studies of Tamkang University in Taipei. The lecture event is jointly sponsored by the Council on East Asian Studies at Yale University and the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in New York.
