Outsourced to China: Confucius Institutes and Soft Power in American Higher Education. A Report by the National Association of Scholars
Peterson, Rachelle
National Association of Scholars
Since 2004, the Chinese government has planted Confucius Institutes that offer Chinese language and culture courses at colleges and universities around the world--including more than 100 in the United States. These Institutes avoid Chinese political history and human rights abuses, portray Taiwan and Tibet as undisputed territories of China, and educate a generation of American students to know nothing more of China than the regime's official history. This is a study of the 12 Confucius Institutes in New York and New Jersey. It examines China's soft power influence through American higher education, and reveals new data on China's funding, hiring, and academic freedom policies.
