The paper summarizes the findings of large-scale research of media reporting and political agency related to China in the Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovakia from 2010 till mid-2017. It provides novel insight into the formation of Chinese influence in the three countries, relying on a unique dataset based on an analysis of more than 7,700 media outputs and a series of interviews with agenda setters and insiders.

The policy paper was prepared within the project “Promoting Understanding and Awareness of Chinese Influence in Central Europe” (ChinfluenCE) in cooperation with Central and Eastern European Center for Asian Studies and Institute of Asian Studies. The project was supported by the National Endowment for Democracy.
