If you have a question about this talk, please contact Shuai Eddie WEI.

This presentation aims to introduce the term “neo-tributary” to encapsulate China’s understanding of its place in the global order, and to explore how this self-understanding has shaped China’s higher education policies over recent decades. It examines the rise of China’s global profile in the international higher education community, as indicated by its rise of human capital, visibility in academic publications, world university ranking, expanding international cultural influence, and becoming a study-abroad destination of international students. It identifies the diplomatic role of higher education in China’s politico-economic development over a century, and the linkage between higher education and China’s international influence.

This presentation is based on Suyan’s recent book (co-authored with Joe Tin-yau Lo) titled Higher Education and China’s Global Rise: A Neo-Tributary Perspective (UK: Routledge). It will engage with audience in a scholarly discussion of what Chinese higher education tells about China’s international relations, especially the aims, means, and nature of China’s rise as a global power.
