Amid growing suspicion of Beijing, the world needs the wisdom of Chinese scholarship – and so does China
- Peter Chang says China’s flexing of its academic muscles is to be welcomed, if its cooperation with others is fair and open
- For its own sake, China must return to pluralistic education, focusing not just on the sciences but the humanities, and free up space for critical learning
Peter T. C. Chang is based at the Institute of China Studies, University of Malaya. He is trained in the field of comparative philosophy and religion. His current research project looks at China's soft power and its impact on the Sino-Malaysia relationship specifically and the wider world generally.
