台灣民主實驗室發佈《震耳欲聾的低語:2020 大選中國在台資訊操作》完整版本(2020 年為精簡版),分析中國如何透過特定手法進行資訊操作。不僅在台灣,近期中國持續在全球進行資訊操作,以展現其意識形態,發生於 2021 年三月的 H&M 新疆棉花爭議事件即為其中一例。

近期瑞典品牌 H&M 因公司政策禁用新疆棉花而導致中國群眾對該品牌出現大規模抵制運動,也讓中國的全球資訊操作手法再次成為媒體注目焦點,但追溯往昔可以發現該模式並非首次出現。

台灣民主實驗室理事長沈伯洋在《震耳欲聾的低語:2020 大選中國在台資訊操作》報告中,提出一個整合模型,歸納中國資訊操作中不同的參與者、代理人及攻擊模式,做為系統性分析中國資訊攻擊的框架。

結合報告中的模型,本文最後亦提出新的「3I」模型,做為更細緻及全面性理解中國影響力操作的架構,並提供與過去「3C」(Covert 隱匿、Coercive 強制性、Corrupting 腐化)模型不同的觀點。
