A recent think tank report reveals that UK universities have received significant amounts of Chinese funding over the past five years, with 30% of this funding coming from entities linked to the Chinese military. Three UK universities received 100% of their Chinese funding from military-linked entities. Chinese equipment manufacturer Huawei remains the largest single source of Chinese funding, despite being banned by the UK government from building 5G networks. The report also highlights the influence of united front organizations, such as Confucius Institutes, and the surveillance efforts aimed at Chinese students. The report calls for stricter guidelines and potentially reducing reliance on Chinese students.
