La faible implication française dans le détroit de Taïwan : enjeux et perspectives

Abstract : If Emmanuel Macron decides to maintain the Asia policy developed by his predecessor, he will have to take into account one of the main regional hotbeds that François Hollande had set aside : the Taiwan Strait. Indeed, France's regional interests are threatened by the strategic rebalancing of relations between Taipei, Beijing, and Washington, which has been ongoing since the elections of Tsai Ing-wen and Donald Trump in 2016. Yet this situation could also help to consolidate these interests in case of renewed French involvement. Nevertheless, since France recognized the sovereignty of People's Republic of China over Taiwan in 1994, the involvement of the European Union would be necessary to implement such a policy, even if it were balanced enough not to undermine relations with Beijing.
