BIRN Albania and SCiDEV Publish Study on Chinese Propaganda

Posted on

New report explores the main narratives of China’s state-sponsored media in Albania at a time when Beijing’s economic and political presence worldwide is growing.

The Balkan Investigative Reporting Network in Albania, together with Science and Innovation for Development Center, SCiDEV, on July 14 published a reporter on Chinese propaganda in the Albanian language.

The report, “Media Analysis: China’s Public Diplomacy in Albania”, was authored Blerjana Bino and Besar Likmeta and funded by the European Union.

This analysis delves into the main narratives produced by Chinese state-sponsored media outlets operating within Albania, a topic which remains understudied despite its increasing relevance.

As China’s economic and political presence grows worldwide, understanding how it projects its influence and shapes local perceptions is becoming crucial.

This research is particularly relevant given the rise of China’s economic and cultural diplomacy in Albania, the geopolitical dynamics at play and the media’s pivotal role in transmitting narratives.
