Previewing the 2024 Taiwan election 

Thursday, December 14, 2023, 2:00 – 3:00 p.m. EST

Taiwan’s voters will go to the polls on January 13, 2024, to elect a successor to President Tsai Ing-wen, who is term-limited. Who will succeed her? What issues will inform Taiwan’s political debate? What impact – if any – will China’s influence have on the election results? And how will the results of the election impact cross-Strait relations, U.S.-Taiwan relations, and Taiwan’s broader role in the world?    

On December 14, the Center for East Asia Policy Studies at Brookings will host a public webinar featuring a conversation with top Taiwan experts Richard C. Bush, Shelley Rigger, and Kharis Templeman, and moderated by Brookings Senior Fellow Ryan Hass. These experts will discuss the upcoming presidential and legislative election, and in what direction Taiwan may be heading.  

Viewers can submit questions via email to or via Twitter/X using #TaiwanElection.
