How does the English-language media report China? What are the implications of this for understanding China and for other countries’ policies towards China? Recent years have seen sharp debates around these issues, with many Western journalists critical of the Chinese authorities for constraining their reporting, and the Chinese government regularly condemning Western media coverage. In a recent report published by the Lau China Institute, King’s College London, in partnership with The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Tim Summers addresses some of these questions through analysis of selected British media coverage of China between 2020 and 2023. At this event, Tim will be in conversation with Laurie Pearcey to outline some of the findings, and explore the wider implications for understanding China and its international relations today.


Laurie Pearcey is Associate Vice-President (External Engagement and Outreach) at CUHK where he is responsible for expanding the University’s global profile and reputation.
