WHO: Committee of 100, a non-profit membership organization of prominent Chinese Americans, and the University of Arizona, one of the leading research universities in the country, will unveil findings from a new joint research project focused on race and ethnicity in science and research.
WHAT: Designed to understand how research and academics have been impacted by the limitations that the U.S. government has placed on international exchange with China, the research will have a special focus on the impact on professors and researchers who are of Chinese descent.
Pulled from nearly 2,000 validated responses, among the findings:
- 50.7% of Chinese descent professors/researchers in the U.S. feel considerable fear and/or anxiety that they are being surveilled by the U.S. government (compared to 11.7% of non-Chinese descent professors/researchers)
- Among those whose research with China was prematurely suspended, 78.5% of Chinese descent professors/researchers in the U.S. wanted to distance themselves from collaborators in China due to the China Initiative (compared to 27.3% of non-Chinese descent professors/researchers)
- Among the professors/researchers who collaborated with China over the past three years, 23.6% of Chinese descent professors/researchers in the U.S. decided not to involve China in future projects (compared to 5.8% of non-Chinese descent professors/researchers)
WHEN: Full research and details to be unveiled on October 28 at 8:00 pm Eastern/5:00 pm Pacific
