ABSTRACT

How Are China and Russia Responding to and Capitalizing on the Coronavirus Crisis?   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Document: "As the coronavirus pandemic spread from China to Europe, the United States, and the rest of the world, all governments scrambled to try to contain it or at least slow it down to avoid healthcare services becoming overwhelmed as they have in some places. While these efforts are still playing out and the pandemic will remain a global challenge for months at least, the repercussions for international politics are being hotly discussed. One key part of this discussion is a battle of narratives about whether authoritarian or democratic political systems are best suited for dealing with the pandemic. Below GMF [German Marshall Fund] experts on China, on Russia, and on authoritarian disinformation give their views on how these two authoritarian powers--one where the coronavirus originated and one where the authorities initially tried to downplay the threat--are attempting to shape the international narratives about the pandemic to their advantage."
