China's Political Influence on Democracies

  • Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs Merrill House, 170 East 64th Street New York, NY 10065-7478 United States of America (map)

China is radically expanding its strategy to wield influence in the domestic politics of other countries. This information campaign is designed partly to bolster China's power but also to undermine the space for rights and democracy in other states, and to potentially support pro-China authoritarian leaders. Carnegie Council is convening a special evening panel and reception to explore what techniques China uses to influence democratic societies and what democracies can do to respond.
