Intel­li­gence Online has post­ed an arti­cle titled ” Recruit­ment dri­ve for key posts at Chi­nese pro­pa­gan­da and Unit­ed Front Work depart­ments.” Accord­ing to the arti­cle abstract:

Feb­ru­ary 28, 2023 Pres­i­dent Xi Jin­ping is press­ing the Chi­nese Com­mu­nist Par­ty to improve its capac­i­ty for deal­ing with the coun­try’s most sen­si­tive issues, includ­ing Tibet, Tai­wan, patri­o­tism among stu­dents study­ing abroad and mil­i­tary-civ­il fusion. [pay­wall]

(Athough the arti­cle is behind a pay­wall, the Glob­al Influ­ence Oper­a­tions Report (GIOR) rec­og­nizes that Intel­li­gence Online is a high­ly spe­cial­ized pub­li­ca­tion worth reading/subscribing to. Indi­vid­ual arti­cles can be pur­chased for $12.00. We will con­tin­ue to alert read­ers to Intel­li­gence Online arti­cles where pertinent.)

The Unit­ed Front Work Depart­ment is a lit­tle-known Bei­jing-based agency with branch­es around the world that seeks to imple­ment the Chi­nese Com­mu­nist Party’s (CCP) plans to set up and con­nect a large net­work of asso­ci­a­tions, busi­ness groups, friend­ship soci­eties, or cul­tur­al groups sup­port­ive of the CCP and to ensure that its over­seas cit­i­zens, and oth­ers of eth­nic Chi­nese descent, stay loy­al. Accord­ing to a US gov­ern­ment report, Unit­ed Front work pro­motes Beijing’s pre­ferred glob­al nar­ra­tive, pres­sures indi­vid­u­als liv­ing in free and open soci­eties to self-cen­sor and avoid dis­cussing issues unfa­vor­able to the CCP, and harass­es or under­mines groups crit­i­cal of Beijing’s poli­cies. The Aus­tralian Strate­gic Pol­i­cy Insti­tute (ASPI), an Aus­tralian think tank, has pub­lished a report exam­in­ing the Chi­nese government’s unit­ed front sys­tem and its for­eign-fac­ing role.
