ScienceGuide: Vaak “down- graden” Europese uni's acd's standrdn om met China te kunnen samenwerken. After Building New AU Headquarters, China Spies on Addis Ababa Facility. Rabat – In 2012, the Chinese government “graciously offered” African States a gift and constructed the African Union’s headquarters in Addis Ababa.
The act of soft diplomacy proved to be a rather self-serving maneuver to spy on the activities and discussions being conducted by leaders of the exclusive continental group. In Addis Ababa, ministers and heads of states meet twice a year to discuss major continental issues. While strict security measures give the impression that that building is closely monitored and secured, an unseen security threat was present from 2012 until 2017. The threat was from none other than those who built the headquarters: the Chinese. China built brand new $200m African union building, including high-tech computer system, for free. Turns out that the building is riddled with microphones, with the donated computers transmitting all voice data back to servers in Shanghai every night. China move may open floodgates. Mainland recognition of foreign degrees taught in Hong Kong is key for UK, writes David Matthews Foreign degrees taught in Hong Kong are set to be recognised in mainland China, potentially opening up a huge new market for UK universities.
Chinese officials told delegates at a British Council conference in Beijing that they are close to expanding a mutual recognition agreement to cover overseas qualifications, which would attract more students from the mainland to study in the city. UK institutions offer around 70 per cent of the overseas programmes taught in Hong Kong, the Quality Assurance of Degrees Awarded in a 3rd Country conference, held on 10 December, heard. Among the institutions that have degrees programmes in the city are the universities of Strathclyde and Birmingham, which offer MBAs. NYU booting blind Chinese dissident Chen Guangcheng amid Shanghai expansion: sources.
NYU isn’t letting a pesky thing like human rights stand in the way of its expansion in China.
The university has booted a blind Chinese political dissident from its campus under pressure from the Communist government as it builds a coveted branch in Shanghai, sources told The Post. Chen Guangcheng has been at NYU since May 2012, when he made a dramatic escape from his oppressive homeland with the help of Hillary Rodham Clinton. But school brass has told him to get out by the end of this month, the sources said. Chen’s presence at the school didn’t sit well with the Chinese bureaucrats who signed off on the permits for NYU’s expansion there, the sources said. “The big problem is that NYU is very compromised by the fact they are working very closely with the Chinese to establish a university,” according to one New York-based professor familiar with Chen’s situation, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. “That’s their liability,” the source said. Chen couldn’t be reached for comment. China Dissident Says He’s Being Forced From N.Y.U.
In a statement released Sunday, Mr.
Chen said university officials were worried that his outspoken criticism of the Chinese government might threaten academic cooperation. N.Y.U. recently opened a campus in Shanghai, and a number of professors are involved in programs and research projects here that could be harmed if they were denied Chinese visas. “The work of the Chinese Communists within academic circles in the United States is far greater than what people imagine, and some scholars have no option but to hold themselves back,” Mr. Chen said. Chinese Dissident Says NYU Is Forcing Him to Leave Over His Activism - The Ticker. [Updated (6/16/2013, 10:19 p.m.) with news of Mr.
Chen's and NYU's statements on Sunday.] Chen Guangcheng, the Chinese dissident who has spent the past year as a visiting fellow at New York University, said in a statement released on Sunday that he was being forced to leave that post at the end of the month because his outspoken criticism of China was hurting the university’s educational ventures there. According to The New York Times, Mr. Chen, whose departure from China last year followed a diplomatic crisis, said in the statement that “the work of the Chinese Communists within academic circles in the United States is far greater than what people imagine, and some scholars have no option but to hold themselves back. Academic independence and academic freedom in the United States are being greatly threatened by a totalitarian regime.” Word of Mr. NYU officials also vehemently denied the allegation.
“We are very discouraged to learn of Mr. WP: Jackson Diehl: Yale, NYU sacrifice academic freedom. The university is at the forefront of an exploding trend: the expansion of U.S. universities, think tanks and other cultural institutions not just to London and Paris, but to unfree countries whose governments are spending billions of dollars to buy U.S. teaching, U.S. prestige — and, perhaps, U.S. intellectual freedom.
China is one of them: In addition to NYU, it is partnering with Duke to build a satellite campus, hosts smaller programs from schools including Harvard, Yale and Princeton and sent 193,000 of its own students to U.S. universities last year. In September a joint venture between Yale and Singapore will open on a campus built and paid for by that autocracy. Then there are the Persian Gulf states. The United Arab Emirates hosts branches of Paris’s Sorbonne and the Louvre and Guggenheim museums in addition to NYU.

Chris Smith, NYU Spar Over 'Control' Of Chinese Dissident Chen Guangcheng. (Adds Chinese newspaper editorial) By Paul Eckert WASHINGTON, June 20 (Reuters) - A U.S. congressman who has been blind Chinese dissident Chen Guangcheng's main champion in Washington said people working for New York University have tried to keep him from meeting Chen, barging into a meeting on Capitol Hill and pulling Chen out on one occasion.

It is an invaluable opportunity for Chinese and American women to interact with one another in a setting devoted to better understanding the elements of leadership—an understanding critical to both of our countries and to developing the next generation of leaders.
The Launch. Image OqFI. Chinese university has students under constant CCTV surveillance. A university in central China has reportedly been using surveillance cameras to monitor virtually every inch of its 181-acre campus, including its classrooms and dormitories.
The Wuchang University of Technology in the city of Wuhan reportedly introduced the technology last year, paying 6 million yuan (about £645,000) in order to keep closer tabs on its 12,500 undergraduates. A 100-strong team of officials has been tasked with monitoring the images as they are captured, according to a report on cnhubei.com, a news website in Hubei province, where the university is located.
Sun Yi, from the university’s business school, said the move was designed to encourage “good study habits” among students. Yu Chengqing, a professor, claimed the cameras had helped improve students’ behaviour by stamping out both smartphones and siestas. “After the cameras were installed the study environment improved a great deal,” one unnamed employee was quoted as saying.

The Chinese Threat to American Speech. But far too many American companies have shown that their values are for sale. They don’t even haggle much over the price. Last year, the Chinese government demanded that foreign airlines remove references to Taiwan from their websites, because China views Taiwan as a renegade province. The four American airlines affected by the order — American, Delta, Hawaiian and United — present themselves to the world as representatives of the United States. The American flag is painted on the outside of their planes; the interiors are American territory. But instead of standing up for American values, the airlines complied with China’s orders. Increasingly, China doesn’t even need to raise an eyebrow for global businesses to blink: American companies are engaged in proactive appeasement.
Comcast and Disney are, of course, free to advocate for the Chinese Communist Party’s position, and against the American and global consensus, in the continuing dispute over China’s international boundaries.

A cautious embrace: defending democracy in an age of autocracies - Foreign Affairs Committee - House of Commons. BBC - Universities 'undermined by overseas autocracies' Image copyright Getty Images Universities in the UK are failing to recognise the seriousness of interference from autocratic countries overseas, a report by MPs says. The Foreign Affairs Committee warns of a threat to academic freedom, in a report highlighting concerns about the influence of China. But government advice about the risks has been "non-existent", say MPs. Tom Tugendhadt, who chairs the committee, called for a defence of "hard-won liberties". The cross-party House of Commons committee says the government and universities have failed to respond to "mounting evidence" of "autocratic states" trying to undermine academic freedom. 'Financial pressure' Autocracies are using "financial, political and diplomatic" pressure to try to influence what is taught, researched and discussed on university campuses, it says.
There are more than 100,000 students from China in the UK, the report says. Image copyright Ben Miskell Protecting democracy "There is a better balance to be found," he said. FT - Czech university mired in Chinese influence scandal. Czech group ousts Chinese flagship investor, CEFC, from control of local empire. For the last five years the Czech Republic and China have moved to boost their foreign and economic relations with Prague hoping to position itself at the centre of Chinese investment in Central Europe. President Miloš Zeman has made frequent visits to China and Chinese president Xi Jinping returned the compliment in March 2016.
Former Czech human rights criticisms and championing of Tibet have been toned down. At the economic and business level, a pay off in terms of a Chinese investment bonanza was hoped for. And, in as much as the much heralded Chinese investments came to fruit, they overwhelmingly stemmed on the Chinese side from one single group, Shanghai-based CEFC. The seventh biggest private company in China is mainly focused on energy assets but in the Czech Republic from late 2015 splurged out on almost everything from breweries, to hotels, a tv broadcaster, and top football club, Slavia Prague.
In many of the local deals, Czech investment group J&T appeared to be involved. Czech group ousts Chinese flagship investor, CEFC, from control of local empire. Czech-Chinese Centre at Charles University to be closed down.
