June 21, 2022 After Confucius Institutes: China’s Enduring Influence on American Higher Education
Co-hosted by the National Association of Scholars

The Heritage Foundation
Confucius Institutes, once a strategic part of China’s overseas influence campaign, have almost disappeared from the United States: 104 of 118 have shut down. But the demise of Confucius Institutes has not deterred the Chinese government, which has persuaded American colleges and universities to reopen and rebrand Confucius Institute programs under new names. A new report from the National Association of Scholars, After Confucius Institutes: China's Enduring Influence on American Higher Education, documents the new ways in which the Chinese government exerts undue influence on American colleges and universities.
A reception will follow the program from 12:00 - 1:00 pm ET.
