A Fresh Start: Safeguarding People, Rights, and Research Amid US-China Competition

Gary Locke

Intensifying US-China competition has put American colleges and universities–and specifically researchers, scientists, and scholars of Asian heritage–under a microscope. Against a backdrop of rising anti-Asian hate, recent efforts to protect US technology and research have resulted in pain and mistrust and infringed on civil rights and civil liberties.

Committee of 100, the Hoover Institute, and the Asian American Scholar Forum held a panel to consider what went wrong, and explore how to work together to advance international collaboration and uphold civil rights and civil liberties while safeguarding America’s leadership in research, science, and technology and its other vital national interests on Tuesday, June 6, 2023

Committee of 100 Chair Gary Locke was a featured panel participant.
