Boosting the party's voice
How China counters the West's global ideological predominance
The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) sees China involved in an ideological confrontation with „the West“, which primarily refers to the United States, but also includes Europe. Under Xi Jinping’s leadership, the CCP’s propaganda apparatus works hard to create and promote a set of Chinese values and norms to present an alternative to „Western“ concepts of democracy, free markets and civil liberties and to discredit Western institutions.
The latest China Monitor “Boosting the Party’s voice: China’s efforts to shape the global ideological discourse” by MERICS expert Mareike Ohlberg analyses the CCP’s campaign to amplify its voice.
