Making Sense of Strategic Ambiguity:  Taiwan, China and the United States

SETH WEINBERGER, Professor of Political Science at University of Puget Sound

The U.S. policy towards defending Taiwan from a Chinese invasion has been described as one of strategic ambiguity, meaning that the U.S. has left it unclear whether and in what situations it would in fact defend Taiwan. Why would the U.S. adopt such a position? Does strategic ambiguity make war more or less likely? And what do President Biden's recent statement that the U.S. will indeed defend Taiwan mean for the U.S.-China relationship?
