The Bottom Line Up Front

On September 16, 2021, the Center for Strategic and International Studies hosted an online discussion with C4ADS Program Director Jason Arterburn on opportunities for using new data solutions to address the challenge of Chinese state capitalism.

Watch the discussion recording.

Chinese state capitalism blurs the relationship between commercial actors and the party-state in ways that have no direct comparison in market-oriented liberal democracies. While policymakers have long sounded the alarm on China’s use of the commercial sector to pursue national security objectives, the complexity and unfamiliarity of state-business relations in China pose serious challenges for rule of law-oriented systems.

On Thursday, September 16, the CSIS Freeman Chair will host Jason Arterburn, Program Director at C4ADS, to discuss opportunities for using new data solutions in addressing the challenge of Chinese state capitalism. The event will coincide with the release of Party Capital: A Blueprint for National Security Due Diligence on China, a new report from C4ADS demonstrating methods in using publicly available information to address national security threats in China’s commercial system.

This event is made possible through general support to CSIS.
