Since assuming power in November of 2012, China’s leader, Xi Jinping, has waged a far ranging and highly visible campaign against corruption, ensnaring thousands of officials in the government, state-owned enterprises, and the military. This tool is intended to give users a sense of the character, scope, and pace of that campaign as well as the connections among its most prominent targets.
Our data is drawn from public announcements of investigations made by the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI), the government body in charge of the campaign, and its official media affiliates, as well as by other Chinese government organs. We supplement that data with reporting from major media outlets. All of the information in the tool comes from published sources.
Click on the icon for an individual anti-corruption target to explore his or her professional and geographic background, connections, and status in the disciplinary process. You can also sort the database by Sector or Location, as well as filter for time. For more about how the tool was built, visit the ChinaFile website.
