Chinese Cultural Security in the Information Communication Era

Focus Asia February 1, 2014, No. 6

This paper addresses the subject of cultural security which has increasingly come into focus in China in recent years with greater attention being accorded to such by the government. It is argued here that in the information communication era there are both threats and opportunities to Chinese culture. The author assesses what China is doing to both counter and harness these before outlining some recommendations on how Chinese cultural security policy can further be bolstered going into the future.
