Strategic Analysis 4/2019: China in the grey zone

“China in the grey zone” analyses different hybrid tools that China uses in seeking a geopolitical advantage. The four themes discussed in the article are: information operations and disinformation, political and economic coercion, cyber and space operations, and provocation by state-controlled forces.

China’s growing military, economic, and diplomatic power has been fuelledin part by traditional investments in its security and foreign policy tools. At the same time, it is increasingly reliant on malign tactics that skirt the distinction between conflict and peace.

“Although China is not the only actor using grey zone approaches to seek geopolitical advantage, the long-term consequences of its efforts may be the most disconcerting for the continuation of a liberal global order”. – write Kathleen H. Hicks, Joseph Federici, and Connor Akiyama from the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, D.C.
