China: U.S. Universities in China Emphasize Academic Freedom but Face Internet Censorship and Other Challenges
David Gootnick (au)
In its äóģCountry Reports on Human Rights Practicesäó¯ for 2015, the U.S. Department of State (State) concluded that academic freedom, a longstanding concern in China, had recently worsened. At the same time, the number of U.S. universities establishing degree-granting institutions in partnership with Chinese universities -- teaching predominantly Chinese students -- has increased. While universities have noted that these institutions offer benefits, some academics and others question whether faculty, students, and staff may face restricted academic freedom and other constraints. This report reviews (1) funding and other support provided to U.S. universities to operate in China; (2) the treatment of academic and other key freedoms in arrangements between U.S. universities and their Chinese partners; and (3) the experience of academic and other key freedoms by faculty, students, and staff at selected U.S. universities in China. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
