Chinese Television Coverage and Chinese Perceptions of Sino-EU Relations

Chinese Television Coverage and Chinese Perceptions of Sino-EU Relations

(p.102) 5 Chinese Television Coverage and Chinese Perceptions of Sino-EU Relations
The International Politics of EU-China Relations


British Academy

This chapter employs a quantitative and qualitative analysis of Chinese television coverage of China–Europe relations to examine many of the outstanding issues of the moment. It notes that reports and comment on Europe and European relations occupy around 10 per cent of coverage on the main news programmes and that most views of Europe are positive, and this in turn may have some kind of impact on the policymaking process in China, though more research needs to be conducted. Overall, however, the chapter concludes that the Chinese understanding of Europe is quite limited, partial, and narrow. Their attention to Europe is confined to international affairs, economic achievements, and natural landscapes. They still consider Europe a remote landmass, with little relevance to their daily lives and personal interests apart from the impacts of Sino–European economic and trade relations.
