Taiwan’s nuclear activities during the Cold War went through two stages—from 1972–1978, and from 1978–1988. During both periods, the United States expended considerable energy on a coercion and inducements campaign to persuade and eventually prevent Taiwan from progressing towards a nuclear weapon. In this talk, drawing on a series of interviews conducted in Taiwan with the support of the Belfer Center’s Managing the Atom Project, the International Security Program and the Stanton Foundation, Eugene Kogan will offer an update on an on-going research to deepen our understanding of this complicated nuclear negotiation.
