Description

As China continues its rise, the actions of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) have implications across the globe and the need for transparency is increasingly important.

Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, the CCP has often withheld, obfuscated, and falsified data for its own purposes. This year, The Heritage Foundation launched a transparency initiative to facilitate a global campaign to systematically expose the CCP’s behavior.

In this podcast, Heritage Senior Policy Analyst Olivia Enos hosts representatives of world-class data projects to discuss how their projects are shining a spotlight on the CCP’s actions and emerging trends from their data.

But civil society hasn’t skipped a beat. In June 2021, The Heritage Foundation released the China Transparency Report highlighting the work of experts all across the world who are dedicated to helping us better understand the aims and activities of the CCP.


This season, you will hear from some of these experts as they share their findings and help us to more effectively counter the CCP’s lack of transparency.
