Sigur Center Asia Report, Issue 15: Taiwan and the Diaoyutai Islands: Historical and Regional Perspectives Open Access

A relatively small chain of islands in the East China Sea has been the focal point of potential maritime conflict between Taiwan (R.O.C.), China (P.R.C.), and Japan for several decades, with escalating rhetoric in recent years. Known to Taiwan as the Diaoyutai, to China as the Diaoyu and to Japan as the Senkaku islands, this dispute was discussed at a Taiwan Roundtable entitled "Taiwan and the Diaoyutai Islands: Historical and Regional Perspectives" held by the Sigur Center for Asian Studies on November 20, 2012. Experts on the history and contemporary international affairs of East Asia met to offer their insights on the background and future implications of the conflict over this disputed territory.
