Telling China’s Story: The Chinese Communist Party’s Campaign To Shape Global Narratives
Tuesday, July 28, 2020 at 12:30PM PT.
Much of the attention to state-sponsored influence practices in recent years has focused on social media activity, particularly as social network companies have announced takedowns of accounts linked to state-backed operations. However, state-sponsored operations are broader than social media. Countries including Russia, China and Iran have demonstrated the ability to operate a full-spectrum capability set that spans both traditional and social media ecosystems. This new white paper examines China’s covert and overt influence capabilities in the context of modern information operations.
