Wednesday, May 26, 2021

The volume of threatening language directed at Taiwan from sources in China, both official and unofficial, has reached a crescendo, and the headlines in the news grow more alarming each month.

Telling China’s Story: The Chinese Communist Party’s Campaign To Shape Global Narratives

by Glenn Tiffert, Renee DiResta, Carly Miller, Vanessa Molter, John Pomfretvia Analysis
Tuesday, July 21, 2020

Well-resourced countries have demonstrated sophisticated abilities to carry out influence operations in both traditional and social media ecosystems simultaneously. Russia, China, Iran, and a swath of other nation-states control media properties with significant audiences, often with reach far beyond their borders. They have also been implicated in social media company takedowns of accounts and pages that are manipulative either by virtue of the fake accounts and suspicious domains involved, or by way of coordinated distribution tactics to drive attention to certain content or to create the perception that a particular narrative is extremely popular.

The Hoover Project on Taiwan in the Indo-Pacific Region supports research and public dialogue about Taiwan’s democracy and society and the pivotal position Taiwan occupies in a vast, strategic, and increasingly integrated swath of the world. The project is chaired by Senior Fellow Larry Diamond and managed by Research Fellow Glenn Tiffert.

Nestled strategically among the democracies to the east of China, Taiwan’s vitality is crucial to the stability and collective security of the entire Indo-Pacific region. One of the most stable and successful liberal democracies outside the West, Taiwan’s effective management of the COVID-19 pandemic has also recently drawn attention to its effective governance. Taiwan’s economic development, robust multiparty politics, vibrant civil society, strong rule of law, and extensive protections for civil liberties hold important lessons for the Chinese-speaking world, and for other states striving to institutionalize key pillars of liberal democracy, such as an independent judiciary, a professional civil service, a politically neutral military, and strong agencies to control corruption. So, too, do Taiwan’s challenges—for example, in addressing political polarization, rising inequality, an aging society, and external efforts at disinformation—bear important wider lessons for scholars and policymakers.

The project’s activities include a regular speaker series with appearances by leading scholars and policymakers from around the world, an annual conference, publications in traditional and social media, and teaching on the Stanford campus.
