    Deepening strategic rivalry between the United States and China, a more repressive and assertive China under Xi Jinping, and souring public moods in many Western countries are having major implications for academic interactions with China. The most visible dimension is increased concern about protection of intellectual property, cyber security, and screening of research partnerships and agreements as seen in the recently-announced NSERC guidelines.

    But the challenges that North American universities face in framing their China connections go much wider, including student recruitment and exchanges in "sensitive fields," the design of exchange and training partnerships, campus atmosphere, and new considerations around academic integrity and freedom.

    What is the current state of play in universities in the United States and post-election Canada? What are the special challenges facing UBC in particular?
