Webinar: Chinese expats in Europe and China’s diaspora policy

7. März 2023, 10:00 - 11:00

I would like to invite you to my webinar “Chinese expats in Europe and China’s diaspora policy”, which will take place on Tuesday, 7 March, 10:00 to 11:00 CET.

Register here!

With the ascendance of Xi Jinping as General Secretary of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and State President, the CCP’s United Front Work Department has increased activities outside of the People’s Republic of China to control and if necessary repress Chinese diaspora groups and individuals. Over the last few month this topic has received bigger prominence with the publication of several critical reports, such as 110 OVERSEAS Chinese Transnational Policing Gone Wild and China’s Diaspora Policy under Xi Jinping.

In this webinar, we seek to better understand China’s policing of overseas communities by discussing this issue with our distinguished speakers Laura Harth (campaigner at Safeguard Defenders and IPAC), Dr. Carsten Schäfer (researcher at the Institute of East Asian Studies, University of Cologne) and Simon Cheng (founder and chairperson of Hongkongers in Britain).

After inputs from the speakers, we will open our interactive online format for a discussion with the participants. The webinar is public; a recording will be made available afterwards.

I look forward to an interesting discussion and hope to see you there! Please do not hesitate to share this invitation with others.
