Unravelling the Chinese Communist Party's overseas influence: United front work from Australia to Europe.
This webinar discusses the recent ASPI ICPC report: The party speaks for you: Foreign interference and the Chinese Communist Party's united front system which reveals the structure and growing scale of Chinese Communist Party influence.
These activities can involve political interference, technology transfer and media influence, and risk inflaming racial tensions around Chinese communities.
Report author, Alex Joske was joined by Martin Hála, sinologist with Charles University, Prague, Didi Kirsten Tatlow, senior fellow at DGAP and Maree Ma, General Manager of Vision Times, for a discussion moderated by Danielle Cave.
This panel discussion dissected Beijing's influence in Europe, Australia and other regions, and debated how governments and societies should respond.
