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

We at the Asian Studies Development Program (ASDP) have opened our conference’s keynote lecture to non-conference attendees. Since our conference is virtual, we felt that all Asian enthusiasts should be able to see a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist speak on his experiences and thoughts on contemporary Chinese intellectuals.

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.
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.
