In Public or in Private: Repressing Dissidents in China

A Talk by Dimitar D. Gueorguiev,Assistant Professor of  Political Science, Syracuse University

When do states repress in public and when do they do so private? I argue that states repress publicly when they believe doing so will deter future dissidents from engaging in similar behavior; otherwise, they repress in private. Leveraging unique data on dissidents in China, I show that repression of political and welfare dissidents is more likely to occur publicly than is repression of religious and ethnic dissidents.
