This webinar was held Monday, April 18, 3:30 - 5:30 p.m. ET.
Concerns over research espionage by China are leading to hundreds of investigations into US researchers, nearly all of them of Chinese national origin. This webinar features three researchers, Xiaoxing Xi, Anming Hu, and Gang Chen, who were arrested by the US Department of Justice.
APS has taken a strong stance on investigations of researchers; APS wrote to Attorney General Merrick Garland in support of Gang Chen and recently filed an amicus brief on behalf of Xiaoxing Xi. Additionally, APS has taken steps to make the United States more welcoming for scientists.
Despite the happy outcomes of the cases against Xiaoxing Xi, Anming Hu, and Gang Chen, and positive actions such as the shuttering of the China Initiative and recent White House guidance to aid researchers on key areas of research security, the damage wreaked by these cases is lasting, both for them and for many other scientists who watched their cases unfold and whose faith in the US justice system and in the promise of the US has been shaken.
