The Australian Strategic Policy Institute has released a report on the Chinese Communist Party’s ‘united front system’. The report discloses how China’s global influence network extends well beyond the CCP’s United Front Work Department, and has been issued at a time of increased concern about the CCP’s influence in Australia, including Victoria, where Premier Daniel Andrews has advisers with United Front links; Victoria has previously signed up to China’s Belt and Road Initiative. The report was written by ASPI analyst Alex Joske, whose previous paper stressed the risks of scientific collaborations with Chinese military researchers.
