How do we cooperate with China?

News: Apr 12, 2019

China has in a comparatively short time become a key global player in research, innovation and higher education, and more and more students and employees at the University of Gothenburg are interested in exchanges and cooperation with China. How should we relate to this economic, military and technological great power?

The seminar "Etiska övervägningar och dilemman i våra internationella samarbeten - det kinesiska exemplet” is held at Pedagogen on April 29. Tommy Shih, Lund University, presents the report he has written together with Lund University's pro-Vice-Chancellor Sylvia Schwaag Serger: "Sverige och Kina – stärkt samverkan för en hållbar framtid."

In the report, the authors advocate extended collaborations between Swedish and Chinese universities. But how do we relate to differences in laws and norms, for example when it comes to personal integrity and legal certainty? How do these differences affect individual students and employees at the university, and others who in their professional role have contacts with China?

The presentation will culminate in a panel discussion where Fredrik Fällman, sinologist at the University of Gothenburg, and Linus Zhang, who works with Swedish-Chinese collaborations at Lund University, participate.

“China is highly topical, and many have an opinion on how we shall relate to the country. But do we have enough knowledge? We hope that this seminar will provide different images of the dilemmas that may arise when working with China”, says Klara Ljungberg, international officer at International Centre, University of Gothenburg.
