"Strong public interest" in Chinese influence claims: Clive Hamilton

23 May 2018
Description

Back to the debate today around Liberal backbencher Andrew Hastie's use of parliamentary privilege to accuse the Chinese Communist Party of seeking to influence Australian media and politics.

Australian author and Professor of Public Ethics at Charles Sturt University, Clive Hamilton, wrote the book 'Silent Invasion: China's Influence in Australia', which saw three publishers pull out, citing fears of reprisals from Beijing, before the book finally hit the shelves.

He says Hastie was trying to open up what he says is a much needed public discussion of Chinese influence in Australia.
