The Taiwan Dilemma: China, Japan, and the Strait Dynamic
Many Chinese and Japanese authorities believe Taiwan is essential to their respective statesâ€™ national security due to the islandâ€™s geographic centrality and beneficial proximity to nearby and distant sea lanes. Of further importance is Taiwanâ€™s immediacy to territorial and resource disputes between China and Japan. This article focuses on the security concerns and strategies of both states and applies realism, its tenets of defensive and offensive realism, and neoliberalism in order to better comprehend those concerns and strategies and also provide probable solutions.
