Chinese Think Tanks Severing Ties With Australian Think Tanks

 Here is more from The Australian Financial Review:

Academics working for Chinese government think tanks and top universities say they are cutting off communications with their Australian counterparts and cancelling plans to travel to the country because they fear they will be accused of being Communist Party infiltrators.

Five prominent academics in China specialising in foreign relations and Australian studies told The Australian Financial Review it was becoming almost impossible to collaborate with Australian universities because of the rise in anti-China rhetoric.

The Chinese government is clearly not happy with some Australian think tanks.
