As Chinese Communist aggression threatens the stability of the Indo-Pacific, Taiwan stands as a beacon of democracy, prosperity, and human rights in the region, and as a contributing member of the community of democracies.

Legislative Yuan President You Si-kun was first elected to the Taiwan Provincial Assembly in 1981, and he has been a long-standing proponent of a free, democratic Taiwan. Please join Hudson Senior Fellow Nury Turkel for a conversation with President You, moderated by Washington Post columnist Josh Rogin, on how to defend Taiwan's hard-won democracy and uphold a free and open Indo-Pacific.
