The Rise of China and the America Response
Feb 26 @ 9:00 pm – 10:00 pm
The Rise of China and the America Response

For the past two decades, China has inevitably risen to be one of the global leaders in technology, economy, and international diplomacy. In response, Trump administration adopted a hard-liner approach by imposing heavier tariffs on China and condemning China for its human rights violation, military aggression, and Covid-19 handling. How did the past eight years affect US-China relations? What stance will the newly inaugurated Biden Administration take against China and alter the landscape of the international community? East Asia Collective is proud to present a panel talk, co-sponsored by the Carter Center, through perspectives of geopolitics, trade and economics, as well as educational exchanges on Friday, February 26, 9 PM EST! Join us to hear insights and speculations made by the three distinguished professors and discuss questions you have in mind with fellow students and peers. RSVP to the panel at bit.ly/2NoBVWz

建立世界一流大学:中国高等教育发展展望 by Denis Simon

丹尼斯·西蒙在过去五年是杜克昆山大学执行副校长,目前是杜克大学校长的中国事务顾问。在过去四十年,他一直关注和研究中国的人才发展和使用、高等教育的国际化和中国的国家创新体制。在这个讲座里,西蒙将聚焦中国高等学府面临的挑战、中国高等院校在中国实现经济、科技和研发强国中的作用、中国高等教育发展面对的不断变化并对其影响和阻碍甚大的政治压力及中国与国际伙伴合作的愿望和程度。此外,他还将讨论中国大学自身科研的优势和缺陷及美国大学与中国在未来建立合作的可能与机会。

Dr. Denis Simon has just completed five years as Executive Vice Chancellor of a highly regarded Sino-Foreign joint venture university in Kunshan, China.  He has spent the last four decades working inside and outside of of the PRC dealing issues related to China’s talent development and utilization, the internationalization of higher education, and the development of the Chinese national innovation system.  In this presentation, he will discuss the challenges that Chinese universities are facing and the role that the university sector is playing in China’s drive for national economic, technological and research pre-eminence, the evolving political pressures that shape and constrain the development of tertiary education in China, and the extent to which China is willing and able to work with international partners.  In addition, he will discuss the strengths and weaknesses of research conducted at Chinese universities and the extent to which US institutions are likely to find opportunities for cooperation in future.

The China Initiative: The ethnic targeting of Chinese scientists and the subsequent brain drain
Mar 11 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
The China Initiative: The ethnic targeting of Chinese scientists and the subsequent brain drain

A video screening and panel discussion about the consequences of the U.S. government’s China Initiative and its future under the Biden administration.

On November 1, 2018, Jeff Sessions, then the U.S. Attorney General, announced the China Initiative, a program designed to combat Chinese espionage from “non-traditional” collectors. Many Chinese and Chinese-American researchers feel that the program has placed a target on their back, and that they are being unfairly targeted for their Chinese ethnicity. There are also critics who say the Initiative has done little more than drive talent away from the U.S.

This event will consist of a screening of a video produced by SupChina about the China Initiative and will then be followed by a panel discussion with guest speakers with exclusive insight into the initiative and its impacts.

About the Speakers:

Catherine X. Pan-Giordano is Partner and Corporate Group Head of the New York office at Dorsey, a firm that has represented some of the individuals that have been impacted by the initiative. As the Co-Chair of the U.S.-China practice, she will share some of the pain points the initiative has caused and how there is ample evidence to show many innocent people have been caught in its crosshairs.

James Mulvenon is the Director of Intelligence Integration at SOS International and a Chinese linguist. Dr. Mulvenon will discuss the legitimate threats that Chinese academics pose and point out some of the reasons that the initiative is essential to U.S. security.

This event will be moderated by Bob Guterma, the COO of SupChina and the Executive Producer of the China Initiative video.

Four decades after China emerged from Maoist isolation, the country remains an enigma to many policy makers, academics, and businesspeople. To help better understand modern day China, please join us for an hour long, interactive conversation with three leading China experts who have spent all or part of their upbringing in China.
Aided and empowered by the digital revolution, China seems to have emerged from the COVID-19 crisis stronger than ever. As Mark Schneider, the global boss of the world’s biggest food company, Nestle, famously remarked, “If you want to see the future, look at China.” Yet, rosy as its outlook is, it also faces numerous challenges and barriers to its continued growth, including an aging population, reliance on foreign technology, and limited success of its multinationals in the United States.
Join us as we seek to gain insights into the legal, political, and business environment of modern-day China. We’ll explore topics such as China’s COVID diplomacy, its belt and road initiative, large state-owned enterprises, local politics, its continuing rivalry with the United States, and many more!
Key takeaways
  1. Gain insights into the paradoxes of modern day, contemporary China: its politics, legal system, and its business environment.
  2. Learn more about how the digital revolution is empowering China’s growth, both inside and outside of the country.
  3. Better understand the challenges China faces as it marches towards becoming the biggest economy in the world, including the struggles of Chinese companies as they venture abroad.

This webinar is FREE and open to all, but registration is required. Zoom details will be sent to all registered participants
