Salomone Quoted on Rise of Confucius Institutes


Professor Rosemary Salomone was quoted extensively in an article, “Confucius Institutes Increase As Another Opens in Djibouti,” that appeared in the April 6 edition of University World News. She noted that, “education conveys not just skills and knowledge, but also ideals…. Looking ahead, given the rapid growth in young Africans now under the age of 25, Confucius Institutes can potentially expose a sizeable segment of the population on the African continent to a worldview that undermines democracy and respect for human rights all in the name of economic growth and mobility.”
