After five years on the ground in China, SRF correspondent Pascal Nufer recently returned to Switzerland. He brings back mixed feelings, but also a fascination for a country so huge and diverse as China. We bring him together with Matthias Kamp, who has reported from China before and is going back as correspondent for NZZ, for a unique hand-off and their take on reporting from China.
What is it like to work as a correspondent in China? What is the picture of China we get in Swiss media? How has the China narrative in Switzerland changed over the last decades and years? And what are the big topics China correspondents (dis)agree on? Are reporters free to bring up their stories? And how do they deal with surveillance and censorship?
Pascal Nufer and Matthias Kamp will discuss these and more questions. Join us for this Talk at the Library live at our office or online on Zoom, and put your own questions to the correspondents of two of Switzerland’s most important media outlets.
This event is for Asia Society Members only.
