China is a multifaceted FIMI actor with a diverse arsenal of tactics that ranges from public diplomacy to illegitimate intimidation and harassment of critical voices to suppress information outside its borders. China’s activities include the spreading of conspiracies, the use of paid social media influencers with undisclosed connections to state-controlled media, and the suppression of competing voices or messages that undermine China’s official narrative. China has built a global media footprint and has been seen using its economic leverage to influence media coverage while heavily restricting foreign correspondent reporting in China. There are worries about the exportation of Chinese censorship policies through global spread of Chinese online platforms. China and Russia have converged in the information environment, with Chinese state-controlled media amplifying pro-Kremlin conspiracy narratives and providing a platform for sanctioned Russian media outlets.
