ChinfluenCE chief coordinator Ivana Karásková was interviewed by the Visegrad Insight on the new policy paper Panda Huggers or Dragon Slayers? Images on China in the Czech and Hungarian Parliaments.

She argues that while for a long time Central European politicians focused on economic opportunities in China, the situation is currently undergoing a substantive change. Marrying economic concerns with security risks, Chinese companies are increasingly portrayed as extended arms of the state.
