September 26, 2022 06:57 PM
Since February, global attention has continued to concentrate on the Russia-Ukraine conflict and its rippling impact, extending beyond its interference in the global supply chain or impulsion of refugees within Europe to the tensions in Eastern Asia between China (PRC) and Taiwan (ROC).

Taiwan Tensions

August 22, 2022 03:31 PM
Taiwan is an autonomous region off the southeast coast of China, with a highly contested legal status. China has consistently maintained that Taiwan is part of their government, and that the island of Taiwan forms part of the country’s territory. Although distinctions have risen between the citizens of these countries, nothing has been done to officially recognize Taiwan. This is a very delicate issue, as it primarily deals with relationships with China, one of the United States’ major trade partners, and a major economic player within international relations today.

China's New Leader

April 27, 2021 09:22 AM
China stands as a rising global power in an increasingly interconnected world. Therefore, the United States must adopt a foreign policy that maintains stability in East Asia. However, relations between the People’s Republic of China (PRC) and the US have undergone many changes in recent years, some for the worse. The most striking point in PRC-US relations is the fact that China views the independence of Taiwan as the continuation of civil war. Understandably, US support of Taiwan only furthers the tension within the region. Consequently, US-Taiwan relations are an ever-changing aspect of US foreign policy that attempts to balance its delicate relationship and maintain peace in the region.

Failures of the New START

April 26, 2021 07:00 PM
On April 8th, 2010 President Barack Obama signed a nuclear arms reduction treaty with Russian Federation Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev. The treaty is called “New START”: START for Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty, and ‘New’ because this treaty is an updated version of previous nuclear arms reduction treaties between the United States and Russia. The United States Senate then ratified the treaty on December 22nd, 2010. The treaty needed 67 votes in order to be ratified and instead received 71. All 56 Democratic senators voted for ratification of the treaty, as well as both independent senators and 13 republican senators who crossed party lines to vote for ratification of the treaty. President Obama completed the ratification process of the treaty by signing the document on February 2nd, 2011.
