The International Forum launched the “Countering Kleptocracy” newsletter, which examines how transnational kleptocracy serves as a vehicle for theft, repression, and influence for political elites—and how democracies might be able to respond. Update your preferences to receive “Countering Kleptocracy” in your inbox.
In the first edition, Melissa Aten, senior program officer for the International Forum, offered insights into how transnational kleptocracy undermines democracy and the rule of law both at home and abroad in a recent Power 3.0 blog post.
Nury Turkel, Alexander Dukalskis, Xiao Qiang, Nate Schenkkan,Greg Walton, and Maya Wang discussed the ways in which the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) utilizes ongoing campaigns and discourse control to wield leverage over international narratives regarding its human rights abuses.
This publication is drawn from an International Forum public event with the Hudson Institute’s Nury Turkel centered around his book on China’s ongoing transnational repression and discourse control against the Uyghur community and others who hold China accountable for its abuses.
Last month, the International Forum revived the Power 3.0 podcast for monthly episodes to address several of the most pressing challenges to democracy and deepen our understanding of the modern authoritarian playbook.
In the introductory episode, International Forum Senior Director John K. Glenn outlined how the podcast will bring togetherleaders on the frontlines of the fight to defend democracy and also explore how new methods of authoritarian influence are reshaping the contest over democratic values.
