Indian regional media's perception of China: Analysis of select editorials from The Assam Tribune and The Arunachal Times

This report examines regional reporting of issues relevant to India-China ties. The authors focus on two newspapers from two of India’s northeastern states located in the India-China border region — The Arunachal Times and The Assam Tribune — chosen because of their wide readership. The timeframe of this study is from 2012 to 2014. The purpose of this exercise is two-fold: one, to explore Indian regional media’s perception of China in states from the bordering region, insofar as the select regional newspapers exhibit such perception through their editorial pieces; second, to offer observations comparing Indian regional media’s perceptions with those of the national newspapers.
