On 8th February, Centre for Geopolitics welcomed six Taiwanese delegates from the Taiwan-UK Interparliamentary Amity Association here in Cambridge. The delegates met the Centre’s experts on international security and Chinese politics, including Director Professor Brendan Simms and Deputy Director Professor William Hurst. The meeting was also attended by Centre affiliates Mr. Charles Clarke and Ms. Suzanne Raine, both of whom have had long careers in geopolitics and security in the U.K, as well as other faculty members from Department of Politics and International Studies. The meeting took place at the Henry Cavendish room in Peterhouse, Cambridge. After Professor Hurst introduced the roles and activities of the Centre, the participants discussed current Indo-Pacific Affairs surrounding Taiwan. The meeting was followed by a lunch at 700-years-old dining hall at Peterhouse, accompanied by Centre-affiliated PhD students who specialise on Indo-Pacific affairs.   Delegates and students exchanged their views on the current geopolitical situation among Indo-Pacific. Centre for Geopolitics has been establishing a solid network with the Taipei Representative Office in London in which we are planning to hold series of intellectual talks and roundtables. The visit of Taiwanese delegates successfully deepened our connection with Taiwan for further collaboration on Indo-Pacific affairs.
