Perception of China  Meaning of Democracy   Detachment from Authoritarianism   Preliminary Findings


China is already seen as the most influential power in Asia by a wide margin over the United States, yet most Asians prefer the United States, Japan, or Singapore as a development model. Despite sovereignty disputes in the South China Sea, citizens in South East Asia generally view the influence of China on their own country in relatively favorable terms. Unsurprisingly given their respective histories, citizens in Japan and Vietnam are least likely to view the influence of China in favorable terms.
