Stanford University, one of the best universities in America now is doing research for China, or so it appears.
According to The Daily Wire:
In mid-February, the university opened the Stanford Center on China’s Economy and Institutions. The center is run by the Freeman Spogli Institute, a foreign policy organization that is connected to the Chinese government. The Freeman Spogli Institute has a history of coopering with China, though it refuses to disclose whether it has taken money from the Chinese government.
According to a report by The Washington Free Beacon, the Freeman Spogli Institute has ties to Peking University in Beijing which is run by a former Chinese spy named Qiu Shuiping. A report from the Australian Strategic Policy Institute designated Peking University as a “high risk” organization for its involvement in Chinese defense research and links to state-owned nuclear weapons programs.
Peking University has hosted joint projects with the University of Chicago as well.
The Center on China’s Economy and Institutions website claims that the center’s goals are to advance students’ understanding of China’s economic and political issues.
This news comes as the Biden administration has indicated a policy of allowing another Chinese propaganda arm, the Confucius Institutes on American college campuses, to continue.
