APS a Leading Voice in Calling for Reforms to China Initiative

March 11, 2022

Matthew Olsen, Assistant Attorney General for National Security, recently announced that the China Initiative, which sowed fear among some APS members and curtailed legitimate collaborations, has ended in its current form. APS was a leading voice in calling for reforms to the initiative – holding community events to highlight the policy’s negative impacts, launching a grassroots campaign to raise awareness with Congress, and having APS leadership meet with FBI staff and US Department of Justice (DOJ) officials to push for changes.

The recent APS News Update, APS Continues Progress to Make US More Welcoming for Science, describes these reforms.
