Beijing has established several programs to lure overseas students back to China to teach, conduct research, lead institutions, and build comprehensive national power. A recent study co-authored by Professor David Zweig suggests, however, that China’s top talent is spurning such offers and are remaining abroad, becoming, in effect, American, Australian, or Canadian talent.
Please join us for a discussion with Professor Zweig on the flows of global talent, the means by which universities and political cultures attract and employ the best minds, and the role of education in soft power competition and academic cooperation between the U.S. and China.
