Dispatch: Beyond Ai Weiwei's Detention

STRATFOR's China Director Jennifer Richmond discusses how the timing of Chinese artist Ai Weiwei’s detention illustrates a change in the Chinese government’s behavior — as well as in increased foreign scrutiny — even at the expense of damaging its public image.


According to the Financial Times, two accounts used by Ai Weiwei were hacked as part of the Operaton Aurora attack on Google. According to Google, the attackers were only able to view details on two accounts and those details were limited to things such as the subject line and the accounts' creation date.
