Committee Featurette - The Third Taiwan Strait Crisis

Every year on SSICsim, we have an exciting joint crisis! For this year's joint crisis, we're pleased to present "The Third Taiwan Strait Crisis."

"The Third Taiwan Straits Crisis is this year’s joint crisis committee based on the 1995-1996 historical event which became pivotal in shaping modern Sino-Taiwanese-American relations. In this simulation, we will slightly deviate from actual history to see what would happen between the U.S. and Chinese governments if the situation became increasingly tense as Taiwan prepares to declare its independence. You will find yourself negotiating through your Aircraft Carriers and Ballistic Missiles, not your pens or papers. Will you be able to help your country succeed in protecting its interests within the Asia-Pacific region?"
