Full Description

This dataset provides an initial quantitative look into China’s public diplomacy activities in the East Asia and Pacific region between 2000-2016. The data is featured in the report Ties That Bind: Quantifying China’s public diplomacy and its “good neighbor” effect, produced by AidData in partnership with the Center for Strategic and International Studies and the Asia Society Policy Institute. This dataset allows disaggregation of Chinese public diplomacy activities into several constituent measures over time and space in 25 East Asia and Pacific countries.

The dataset download includes a ReadMe, a methodology document, and two separate data files: (1) China’s Public Diplomacy in East Asia and Pacific, Version 1.0, which provides country-year aggregates for each public diplomacy measure; and (2) China’s Financial Diplomacy Project Details, which provides a detailed look at the Chinese Official Finance flows that are used in the main analysis for financial diplomacy.

This research was conducted with generous support from the United States Department of State and in partnership with the Asia Society Policy Institute and the Center for Strategic and International Studies.
