Abstract
Recently the US-China technology competition and decoupling has been accelerating and has contributed to the rise of nationalistic sentiment and geopolitical tension. One key dimension that has been fueling the US-China tech competition is the issue surrounding data privacy and security. This study examines how the technology competition between the US and China invokes nationalistic sentiments and affect people’s perception on data privacy and surveillance in China.
