Taiwan’s Elections: The Era of Tsai Ing-wen

Alan Romberg
Distinguished Fellow, Stimson Center

Though recently-elected DPP Chair, Tsai Ing-wen, has tried to make clear she will not upset any applecarts, she also will not directly endorse “one China” as Beijing insists. In light of this, Alan Romberg will address what the coming months might hold for cross-Strait relations and for U.S. policy interests.

Alan D. Romberg is a Distinguished Fellow and the Director of the East Asia program at the Stimson Center. Before joining Stimson in September 2000, he enjoyed a distinguished career working on Asian issues, including 27 years in the State Department with over 20 years as a U.S. Foreign Service Officer. Romberg was the Principal Deputy Director of the State Department’s Policy Planning staff, Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Public Affairs and Deputy Spokesman of the department. He served overseas in Hong Kong and Taiwan. Additionally, Romberg spent almost 10 years as the CV Starr Senior Fellow for Asian Studies at the Council on Foreign Relations, and was special assistant to the secretary of the navy. Romberg holds an M.A. from Harvard University, and a B.A. from the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University.
