Roundtable with Eric Heginbotham
On October 19, 2022, the members of the National Bureau of Asian Research (NBR) Chairman’s Council engaged in a roundtable discussion with Eric Heginbotham, principal research scientist at MIT’s Center for International Studies and a specialist in Asian security issues. Moderated by NBR President Roy Kamphausen, Mr. Heginbotham spoke about the structure, motivations, and outcomes of a wargame scenario of a Chinese invasion of Taiwan. Following the presentation, the Chairman’s Council members engaged Mr. Heginbotham in a series of questions and answers to gain deeper insights on the topic and offer their thoughts on how to ensure safety in the Indo-Pacific region.
NBR Chairman’s Council is an exclusive forum for select supporters to engage with other business and policy leaders focused on Asia in a high-trust setting. Chairman’s Council members support NBR’s nonpartisan, above-the-fray approach to promoting U.S. policy toward Asia.
