The MEMRI Chinese Media Studies Project (CMSP) – As U.S.-China Tensions Rise, Read The Latest Translations, Reports, Analysis, And Videos From Chinese Media



*WASHINGTON DC / ACCESSWIRE / August 11, 2022 / *As tensions between the People's Republic of China (PRC) and Taiwan escalate following the visit of U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's visit to Taiwan, the Chinese Media Studies Project (CMSP) of the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) is publishing translations, reports, analysis, and videos focusing on the current situation in the region, from inside and outside it. Just last week, China halted cooperation with U.S. on climate and military issues after it sent missiles over Taiwan, in retaliation for the visit; earlier, it had announced sanctions against Pelosi and her direct family members and called the visit "vicious and provocative actions."

Well in advance of Speaker Pelosi's visit, CMSP publications focused on the wave of warnings and threats from Chinese officials and experts in connection with it. Since then, the project has released official videos showcasing China's military capabilities, statements reiterating that China's military "remains fully prepared for any crisis," along with reactions to the visit from the Middle East and Russia and speculation about its possible ramifications.

The MEMRI CMSP monitors, translates, and analyzes primary source content from print and online Chinese media, videos from Chinese TV channels, schoolbooks, and official government documents and transcripts. It 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. By doing so, it provides a greater and more nuanced understanding of China, its people, its Chinese Communist Party-led government, its ideology, and its regional and international aspirations.

A new MEMRI CMSP effort is its Chinese Schoolbooks Initiative - an ongoing examination of the Chinese government's educational system. The initiative investigates the PRC's official textbooks for children from elementary to secondary schools, including translated excerpts from, and commentary to, these deeply ideological texts used by the PRC to shape young minds.

The CMSP is the only project carrying out this research. Heino Klinck, former U.S. deputy assistant secretary of defense for East Asia and former U.S. military attaché in China, who is also a member of the MEMRI Board of Advisors and a regular contributor to the CMSP, stated: "I frequently referenced CMSP products while I was in office, 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 as to the Chinese Communist Party's intent to dominate the region and beyond."

For nearly 25 years, MEMRI has been bridging 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, with a focus on the reality of the Middle East, from Arabic, Farsi, Turkish, Urdu, and Pashtu media. Over six years ago we added Russian, and in 2020 we added Chinese (both Mandarin and Cantonese).
