Robert Clark’s report uncovers a financial overreliance on Chinese institutions, with implications for both national security and the financial sustainability for UK higher education providers. The report calls on the government to address the many challenges posed by an overreliance on Chinese funding in our universities, including through an alignment of the UK’s sanctions list, export controls, and control orders with those of the US. The Committee for Freedom in Hong Kong Foundation and Civitas hope you can join us for this exclusive event.
