The Portrayal of China in German Media

With their presentation of specific topics and discourses, especially in international news reporting, the media construct specific realities that shape a society’s images of other regions.
Their focus on – or omission of – selected subject areas contributes to the formation of national images that can have repercussions on social and political interactions with those nations.

This comprehensive study by Carola Richter and Sebastian Gebauer takes stock on the basis of six studied print media and information programs of the public broadcasters and analyzes the portrayal of China in German media.

The summary shows the essential results of the study, originally published in German as well as propositions and recommendations designed to raise awareness for certain difficulties related to reporting about China and to provide pointers for practical journalistic work.
