Zaragoza is Spain’s 5th largest city. University of Zaragoza has signed an agreement with the Chinese government to open a Confucius Institute in June. Faculties have raised questions on this partnership and one professor Javier Juberias wrote an article on a local paper to oppose the Confucius Institute. Controversies have never left CIs! You can read it in Spanish.
People in Zaragoza have launched an anti-CI campaign. They put up a petition website to collect signatures. We will follow the development of the Confucius Institute in this case.
