Paul Irwin Crookes contributed to debates on cross-Taiwan Strait security at a policy-led Roundtable hosted by the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) in London

Paul Irwin Crookes was invited to contribute to a policy-led Roundtable in March 2015 hosted by the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) at their headquarters in Whitehall, London. The event covered a wide-ranging series of debates that included analyses of regional historical legacies of World War Two in East Asia, the changing nature of Chinese foreign policy under Xi Jinping and the implications of deepening cross-Strait economic integration in ties between mainland China and Taiwan.


Invited participants included stakeholders from diplomatic and political communities as well as academics from leading universities. The discussions were chaired by policy specialists from RUSI.


Paul Irwin Crookes is co-editor with Jan Knoerich of a forthcoming book currently in press with Palgrave Macmillan’s St Antony’s Series entitled Cross-Taiwan Strait Relations in an Era of Technological Change: Security, Economic and Cultural Dimensions due to be published in May 2015.
