China Observers in Central and Eastern Europe (CHOICE) is a multinational consortium of experts (analysts, specialists) providing informed analysis on the rising influence of the People’s Republic of China within the countries of Central and Eastern Europe (CEE). CHOICE provides a platform for discussion, information sharing, best practices and collaboration for its members monitoring and evaluating Chinese activity in the CEE.

CHOICE offers grounded discussion to critically assess and analytically dissect China’s 17+1 initiative, Belt and Road, and other China-led initiatives targeting CEE countries. CHOICE is the premier organization for China watchers (scholars, analysts, professionals) in the CEE to share insight, gather information and build a holistic understanding of China’s activities in the region.

CHOICE is run by the Association for International Affairs (AMO), a prominent Prague-based foreign policy think tank and NGO.
