  • Banning “Western Values” in China

    3,955 views 10 months ago
    China's Education Minister, Yuan Guiren, has been speaking out about the threat of Western values and ideas on China’s college campuses. He said, “Young teachers and students are key targets of infiltration by enemy forces,” and added that “some countries,” fearful of China’s rise, “have stepped up infiltration in more discreet and diverse ways.” Can the government’s latest attempts to tighten controls over China’s intellectual discourse succeed? That’s the focus of this edition of Wilson Center NOW.

  • Surveillance, Security and Trust Play all

    On June 5, 2013, controversial revelations by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden sparked an intense, worldwide debate about the methods and technology used by the U.S. and its allies to collect intelligence. While experts argue whether Snowden is a whistleblower or a criminal, there's no question that the issues raised about national security and civil liberties are real, important and timely.

    In a unique series, the Wilson Center will host four panel discussions leading up to the anniversary of Snowden's leaks. We will examine how and why countries conduct surveillance, the relationship between security and liberty, whether current technology will become obsolete and how to explain surveillance to a generation raised in a digital world.
