|How does the Chinese Government engineer its victories around the world? How has this threat influenced different aspects of our societies? How does it seek to persuade our leaders, policymakers, and elites to take decisions in its interests?
These questions are no longer the niche interests of security analysts but real and present threats to our democratic societies. In the past year, influence and information operations — launched by the CCP — have been uncovered across the Free World. In this new era of increased great state completion, both recognising and combatting these operations will be critical to defending our sovereignty and democratic norms.
In this event, jointly organised by the Henry Jackson Society and the US Embassy, London, David Shullman, Mareike Ohlberg, and Matthew Henderson — three people with personal experience of calling out CCP influence operations in the West — will discuss how the Chinese Communist Party’s network of operations works in real life. Together they will offer a potted history of operations, clarity on how to identify CCP influence and information operations, and a guide on how to tackle them.
