As China’s economy has grown, the country’s cultural impact on the world has also expanded. Beijing’s recent soft power initiatives include broadening the size of Chinese state media’s overseas audience, increasing the worldwide number of Confucius Institutes to 1,000 by 2020, and bidding to host the 2022 Winter Olympics. Through these efforts, China is seeking to refine its global image and establish the country as a key driver of cultural and social trends. How successful has this approach been for enhancing China’s reputation around the world and what remains to be done?

To examine how the Chinese government develops its public diplomacy though Chinese culture, history, and social discourse, Ingrid d’Hooghe will present the findings from her upcoming book China’s Public Diplomacy. Afterward, Pang Xun will moderate a discussion.
