In March 2021, the Swedish Raoul Wallenberg Institute of Human Rights and Humanitarian Law published its “Decoding China Dictionary”. Authored by a group of China specialists, the document provides an overview of 14 political terms that are frequently used in international relations and development cooperation with China, but which hold very different meanings in China as compared to liberal democracies.

On June 3, 2021, the LeidenAsiaCentre organised an interactive online discussion about the publication with one of the authors of the dictionary and two experts of Chinese soft power. You can now watch the recording of the webinar on our Youtube channel:
