The Chinese Media Studies Project (CMSP) MEMRI – As U.S.-China Tensions Rise, Read the Latest Chinese Media Translations, Reports, Analysis, and Videos – Subscribe Free
August 5, 2022 – As tensions between the People’s Republic of China (PRC) and Taiwan escalate following the visit of United States House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to Taiwan, the Chinese Media Studies Project (CMSP ) from the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) publishes translations, reports, analysis and videos covering the current situation in the region, from within and without. Just last week, China halted cooperation with the United States on climate and military issues after sending missiles over Taiwan in retaliation for the visit; Earlier, he announced sanctions against Pelosi and his direct family members and called the visit “vicious and provocative actions.”
Long before Speaker Pelosi’s visit, CMSP publications focused on the wave of warnings and threats from Chinese officials and experts about it. Since then, the project has released official videos showing China’s military capabilities, statements reiterating that the Chinese military ‘remains fully prepared for any crisis’, and reactions to the visit from the Middle East and Russia. and speculation about its possible ramifications.
MEMRI CMSP monitors, translates, and analyzes primary source content from Chinese print and online media, videos from Chinese television stations, textbooks, and official government documents and transcripts. He also translates speeches by a wide range of Chinese government and military officials, as well as statements by journalists from Chinese-language media, including social media. In doing so, it offers a broader and more nuanced understanding of China, its people, its Chinese Communist Party-led government, its ideology, and its regional and international aspirations.
A new effort by MEMRI CMSP is its Chinese Schoolbooks Initiative – an ongoing review of the Chinese government’s education system. The initiative studies official PRC textbooks for primary and secondary school children, including translated excerpts and commentaries from these deeply ideological texts used by the PRC to mold young minds.
The CMSP is the only project carrying out this research. Nobody else does what we do.
Heino Klinck, former U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for East Asia and former U.S. military attaché to China, who is also a member of the MEMRI advisory board and a regular contributor to the CMSP, said: “I frequently referenced the products of the CMSP while I was in power, as MEMRI’s work uniquely captured the narrative woven by the People’s Republic of China for its own domestic audience. MEMRI’s translations leave no doubt about the Chinese Communist Party’s intention to dominate the region and beyond.
For nearly 25 years, MEMRI has bridged the language gap between the Arab and Muslim world and the West by providing continuous and timely translations in English and other Western languages to Western audiences, emphasizing the reality of Middle Eastern, from Arabic, Persian, Turkish, Urdu and Pashto. Over six years ago we added Russian, and in 2020 we added Chinese (Mandarin and Cantonese).
