Asia on Tap
This week's picks

November 21, 2020

Our featured release this week is an essay by Naima Green-Riley on trends in U.S. public opinion on China since the start of the pandemic and what they mean for the U.S.-China relationship. A PhD candidate and Raymond Vernon Fellow in the Department of Government at Harvard University, Green-Riley is the second of our “emerging voices” to contribute to the New Normal in Asia series. Along with her essay, I recommend a look back at Dennis C. Blair’s penetrating New Normal essay on the potential effects of the pandemic on the Asian security architecture of the future.

This week’s Asia on Tap also features video from a virtual discussion on the key drivers shaping Taiwan’s post-Covid-19 economic trajectory and the future of U.S.-Taiwan economic relations. And finally, with the encouraging Covid-19 vaccine developments, I suggest revisiting an interview with Benjamin Shobert on U.S. reliance on global supply chains.

Until next time,
