How chinese entities influence academic institutions and how to prevent related security threats

The European Values Security Centre has conducted extensive research on relations and cooperation between Czech universities and universities (or other entities in general) from the People’s Republic of China (PRC). This research was part of the international project “China-Europe Academic Engagement Tracker“, which was also conducted in 11 European countries under the leadership of the Slovak think tank Central European Institute of Asian Studies (CEIAS).

Among the most significant findings of our research is the cooperation between Czech universities and Chinese entities with clearly proven links to the Chinese military industry or those that are part of Chinese propaganda.

The report includes a list of practical recommendations on how to prevent threats arising from Chinese influence on Czech universities, taking into account good practices in other countries.
