Event description
The Henry Jackson Society invites you to this book sales event for Andreas Fulda's new work

About this Event

From the early 1970s, the three regions of Taiwan, Mainland China and Hong Kong have experienced divergent democratic fortunes, as election driven, gubernatorial or protest initiatives have attempted to further civil society causes and democratic politics. In tandem to this, the Chinese Communist Party has grown ever more adept at its use of “sharp power”- penetrating the political and information environments in Western democracies to manipulate debate and suppress dissenters living both inside and outside China, in the interest of domestic security. In his new work, Dr Andreas Fulda, Associate Professor at the School of Politics and International Relations at the University of Nottingham, delves comparatively into the different strategies and tactics political activists have taken, assesses the lessons activists have learned from both successes and failures and considers how these experiences have informed their struggles for democracy.
