Decoupling from the West Will Be Hard on China’s Higher Education
Keywords:Chinese higher education, Confucius Institutes, academic conflict between the West and China
China is engaged in a geopolitical conflict with the West, especially with the United States, and this has a significant impact on Chinese higher education. Collaborative research will decrease. China-funded Confucius Institutes have been closed. Within China itself, there are more restrictions on universities. Is a new “academic cold war” looming between China and the West?
