ASPI Webinar- Unraveling the CCP's overseas influence: United front work from Australia to Europe

About this event

ASPI is delighted to invite you to the webinar discussion 'Unraveling the Chinese Communist Party's overseas influence: United front work from Australia to Europe.'

The ASPI International Cyber Policy Centre's (ICPC) recent report The party speaks for you: Foreign interference and the Chinese Communist Party's united front system revealed 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.

Join report author, ICPC's Alex Joske with 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 ICPC's Danielle Cave. This panel discussion will dissect Beijing's influence in Europe, Australia and other regions, and debate how governments and societies should respond.
