China is increasingly using its power to change the global governance system from within. If unchecked, these efforts will hasten the export of some of the most harmful aspects of China’s political system, including corruption, mass surveillance, and the repression of human rights. Dr. Daniel Kliman, Senior Fellow and Director of the Asia-Pacific Security Program at CNAS, and researchers Ashley Feng and Kristine Lee discuss a new CNAS report on China’s emerging strategy in international organizations. In their conversation, they unpack how these institutions have become a key battleground for determining which set of values will shape the 21st century.
