Closed petition Regulate international educational partnerships to prevent foreign influence

We believe the Government should regulate the international educational partnerships that educational institutions are able to enter into, with a view to preventing foreign influence.

More details

There are concerns that some international educational partnerships, such as Confucius Institutes (CIs), funded by the Chinese government and hosted by educational institutions in the name of language teaching & cultural exchanges, result in undue foreign influence.

There are around 30 CIs in UK universities and over 100 Confucius ‘Classrooms’ (CCs) in schools. The Government should regulate these partnerships to protect democratic values, freedom of thought and prevent foreign influence.
