How have US-China trade relations impacted US higher education? In a new paper, Gaurav Khanna and his co-authors link trade liberalization with China to increased enrolment of Chinese students at US universities. The study also highlights the consequences of the US-China trade war and recent proposals looking to limit student visas. Notably for US higher education, Khanna and his co-authors estimate that recent trade wars could cost US universities over $1 billion in tuition revenue over the next ten years.
Khanna will join CGD for an online presentation of the paper in which he will discuss the methodology, results, and policy implications for immigration, trade, and higher education. We will be accepting questions both before the presentation via email and during the event via Zoom.
