  • Relations between the United States and China are souring dramatically in what is rapidly becoming a Cold War setting. This is having significant impact on multiple sectors, including universities that over four decades have built a web of linkages largely regarded as of mutual advantage. In particular, faculty in STEM and other fields including bio/medicine, and Chinese students at American universities, have become increasingly entangled in the escalating confrontation between Washington and Beijing.

    In this online encounter we will ask:

    What are the national security and integrity of research considerations behind these actions?

    What are the scale and scope of activities considered improper or illegal?

    What have been the consequences for American universities and how have they responded?

    What are the implications for third countries, including Canada?

    How do we balance the advantages of open science, collaborations, education and exchange with the need to protect national security, maintain cyber security, safeguard intellectual property, and maintain ethical standards?
