2023 Public Opinion Polls: Chinese Outlook on International Security

May , 2023


By The Center for International Security and Strategy, Tsinghua University (CISS).

As the world is standing at a historic crossroads, the international order is undergoing the most significant changes since the end of the Cold War, among which China is undoubtedly in the firing line. The rest of the world is now watching China with curious eyes full of hope, doubt or anxiety. What is China like? How do Chinese people view the world? How will China utilize its growing strength? China has been trying to answer these questions, but there are still many confusions, misunderstandings and misinterpretations in the outside world. To reduce the “information deficit” in the dialogue between China and the rest of the world, research institutions in China need to adopt scientific methods to present the world with a “filter-free” picture of China in a continuous, accurate and objective way.

The Center for International Security and Strategy, Tsinghua University (CISS) strives to promote, elucidate, and spread China’s perspectives, aiming to enhance the international community’s understanding of China. In November, 2022, CISS organized public opinion polls on the topic of “Chinese Outlook on International Security”.
