Understanding China's Evolving Counterterrorism Strategy

The European Council on Foreign Relations published in October 2016 a policy brief titled "Terror Overseas: Understanding China's Evolving Counter-Terror Strategy" by Mathieu Duchatel, deputy director of the Asia and China program at the European Council of Foreign Relations.

This policy brief suggests a militarization trend is emerging in China's counterterrorism strategy overseas, including Africa. This is reflected in a new counterterrorism law and new developments within the People's Liberation Army in terms of doctrine, training, equipment, basing and diplomatic activity. In response to the emergence of new threats, China's approach to international cooperation is also changing.
