Information control in China with Hermann Aubié

New Books Network 2020

In this episode, Hermann Aubié talks with Outi Luova of the University of Turku about the methods of information control that have been applied by China's party-state since the early days of the COVID-19 outbreak. What were the possible reasons that enabled the party-state's politics to prevent China's infectious disease surveillance and reporting system from working? How does the Communist Party of China try to manage the flow of information about the pandemic not only in China, but globally?
