Red Flags: The infiltration of Australia’s universities by the Chinese Communist Party.
Four Corners presents a major investigation into the infiltration of Australia’s universities by the Chinese Communist Party.
These institutions are embroiled in a growing geo-political storm amid rising concerns over the Chinese Government’s expanding power abroad.
Australia’s universities earn billions of dollars a year from student fees and research collaborations with China, but there are growing fears these lucrative arrangements may be putting our academic independence, human rights commitments and even our national security at risk.
In a joint investigation, Four Corners and Background Briefing detail how Australian technology and know-how is being used to help strengthen China’s repressive regime.
