China’s Tech-Enhanced Authoritarianism

Samantha Hoffman
The Chinese Communist Party’s priority is to pre-empt all perceived threats to state security, which means the Party must not only protect its existing power, but also continuously expand its power outward. Information fuels the CCP’s power protection and enables the tools used to make it stick. Tools include “smart cities technologies” and the “social credit system”. The Party attempts to control international discourse on China and the channels through which individuals, businesses, and governments, can engage with China. It expects technology to enhance the sophistication of this process.
