Dissent in China is more widespread than most people know. That’s because Chinese state media doesn’t report on it, and China’s censorship apparatus either blocks or erases evidence of it. The NGO Freedom House has created a China Dissent Monitor to track various forms of protest in China. In this episode of China Unscripted, we talk about the perception that protests in China are rare, what kind of protests are the most common, and the forms of dissent the China Dissent Monitor tracks. Joining us in this episode is Kevin Slaten, the research lead for China Dissent Monitor.
