Ivana Karásková, the Founder and Leader of CHOICE, wrote an analysis for the European Centre of Excellence for Countering Hybrid Threats on China‘s information operations in CEE. Traditionally, China’s influence toolbox has contained a mixture of public diplomacy and propaganda targeting political and economic elites, but in recent years, it has added new tools and techniques to its influence portfolio and focused on new targets.

This Strategic Analysis focuses on how China’s information operations in the region of Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) have changed.
