VIDEO: China’s Troubling Funding Influence in Higher Education

On June 25, 2024, the Legal Insurrection Foundation held an online event, China’s Troubling Funding Influence in Higher Education.

From the announcement:

China’s influence in all facets of our country has expanded rapidly in recent decades. Incredibly concerning is the vast stranglehold China has on research institutions. In this webinar we will discuss how Chinese funding of our major research institutions and universities is impacting higher education and what can be done to stop the damage.

This event is hosted by the Legal Insurrection Foundation. We’re pleased to host Paul Moore, Paul R. Moore is a Senior Fellow supporting the Prague Security Studies Institute’s Economic and Financial Statecraft Program. He previously served as Chief Investigative Counsel at the U.S. Department of Education, where he led the Department’s investigations of undisclosed foreign financial involvements at America’s colleges and universities. Mr. Moore served for 12 years at the U.S. Department of Justice, including as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Boston, Massachusetts and Alexandria, Virginia economic crime units. At DOJ, he also served as Senior Counsel in the Office of Legal Policy and as Counsel to the Assistant U.S. Attorney General.

Mr. Moore was General Counsel for a U.S.-based defense contractor, has worked for two governors, and has provided testimony to the U.S. Congress regarding nefarious efforts by foreign powers to access American intellectual property at university-affiliated research institutions.

Legal Insurrection Foundation founder and president, William Jacobson will also participate in the discussion moderated by Kemberlee Kaye, Operations and Editorial Director for Legal Insurrection Foundation.
