Implications of the Chinese Foreign NGO Law for International Educators: Conference Call with Mark Sidel
There were over 77 registrants and more than 60 participants on the call, which represented 10 organizations in international education and 58 AIEA member institutions.
Colleges and universities across the United States and beyond have been deeply concerned about how restrictive moves in Chinese policy may affect the work that US institutions are doing in China – work that ranges from student recruitment to foreign study, language training, graduate student and faculty research, joint research, and many other forms of cooperation. Central to these concerns has been the new Chinese Law on the Management of the Domestic Activities of Foreign Nongovernmental Organizations, which was adopted in April and goes into effect in January 2017.
Mark Sidel, Doyle-Bascom Professor of Law and Public Affairs at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Consultant for Asia at the International Center for Not-for-Profit Law (ICNL), graciously presented information on a conference call on this topic in October for the Association of International Education Administrators (AIEA) members. The conference call provided information on the law and how it may affect US higher education institutions as well as the implications of other Chinese policy shifts. Following a brief outline of the law, Mark Sidel answered questions from members on implications for Senior International Officers.
Gil Latz is serving as president of AIEA this year.
