Chinese security word cloud

Rendering security visible

Security in China research consortium investigates the workings of security in the contemporary People’s Republic.

Security in China

Security has become pervasive in the contemporary People’s Republic of China. Its logics, technologies and practices shape Chinese politics as they do Chinese society. And with the PRC’s growing global reach, its implications are felt beyond China’s national borders.

The research consortium Security in China breaks new ground both in the study of Chinese security politics and in critical security studies by bringing together an international group of experts to study the workings and politics of security in different loci of the contemporary PRC.

(The word cloud was generated from the Chinese government’s white paper “China’s National Defense in the New Era” (2019).)

Funding and Collaboration

The consortium is a collaboration between Tampere University and the University of Turku. It is funded by the Academy of Finland.
