Ties That Bind: Chinese Public Diplomacy in East Asia and the Pacific
The S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies (RSIS) in Singapore, in partnership with AidData at the College of William & Mary, the China Power Project at CSIS, and the Asia Society Policy Institute (ASPI), co-hosted a conference on Chinese Public Diplomacy in East Asia and the Pacific at the Marina Mandarin Singapore on June 27. 2018. The conference presented the findings of a path-breaking study by AidData titled, Ties That Bind: Quantifying China’s public diplomacy and its “good neighbor” effect.
Four panel discussions and a lunch keynote, all featuring experts from around the world, dove deeper into the reach and influence of Chinese public diplomacy and the policy implications for countries across the Asia-Pacific.
Funding for this project was provided by the United States Department of State.
