October 5, 2021
WASHINGTON, D.C. —As China’s accelerating military air incursions into Taiwan’s airspace have ratcheted tensions to new heights, Center for Security Policy (Center, centerforsecuritypolicy.org) will host a webinar focused on the Taiwan-China conflict on Wednesday, October 6 at 1:00pm ET.
The panel will feature Kerry Gershaneck, who will discuss the conflict and his new book, “Media Warfare: Taiwan’s Battle for the Cognitive Domain,” which has been published by the Center.
WHO: Center for Security Policy, along withProfessor Kerry Gershaneck, Visiting Scholar at the Graduate Institute of East Asian Studies, National Chengchi University in Taiwan.
WHAT: Webinar on Taiwan-China conflict and the public release of “Media Warfare: Taiwan’s Battle for the Cognitive Domain.”
WHEN: Wednesday, October 6, at 1:00pm ET.
WHERE: Media and the public may register for event here.
WHY: Professor Gershaneck’s book is a guide to help democracies identify the many attack vectors employed by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)’s media warfare apparatus in its efforts to “win without fighting.” Beijing seeks to undermine and weaken competitors not by direct military confrontation but by stirring up domestic friction and discontent. Using evidence from Taiwan’s experience, he shows how the targets of the CCP’s Media Warfare apparatus will be too exhausted to resist the CCP’s advances.
