China’s use of cyber coercion


This event, hosted by UK think IISS will feature an evaluation of China’s use of cyber assets to advance several of its strategic goals.

As part of a research project by The International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) on cyber campaigns and coercive diplomacy, this webinar will feature an evaluation of China’s use of cyber assets to advance several of its strategic goals.

These goals include China’s anti-independence drive against the Democratic Progressive Party in Taiwan, its ‘anti-terrorist’ drive against the Uighur population and Tibetan opposition groups, and China’s consolidation of its South China Sea territorial and maritime claims.

The panel will assess how extensive and how effective China’s cyber campaigns have been in achieving these goals.

Panellists:

Mark Bryan Manantan is currently the Lloyd and Lilian Vasey Fellow at the Pacific Forum and concurrently a Non-Resident Fellow at the Center for Southeast Asian Studies at the National Chengchi University in Taiwan.

Munish Sharma is a Consultant at the Manohar Parrikar Institute for Defence Studies and Analyses (MP-IDSA), conducting policy research on cyber security, critical information infrastructure protection and the role of strategic technologies in national security.

Greg Austin leads the IISS Cyber, Space and Future Conflict programme and holds a co-appointment as Professor of Cyber Security, Strategy and Diplomacy at the University of New South Wales Canberra.
