Confucius Institute Arrangements

Roedd y cais yn rhannol lwyddiannus.

Dear Cardiff University,

I am writing to request information under the FOIA 2000.

I am interested in learning about the arrangements between your organisation and Hanban, and any other organisation that is involved in setting up the Confucius Institute at your organisation.

I would like to access items such as the agreement, along with any documents detailing the arrangement between your organisation, Hanban and any other organisations involved, and any donations (monetary or otherwise) in relation to the setting up of the CI at your organisation.

Thank you for your time and I look forward to your response.

Yours faithfully,

Howard Tang

Dear Howard

 

I am writing in response to your Freedom of Information request dated 25
July 2019 in which you requested information regarding the Confucius
Institute.

 

For ease of reference, I have reproduced your questions below and set out
our corresponding responses.

 

I am interested in learning about the arrangements between your
organisation and Hanban, and any other organisation that is involved in
setting up the Confucius Institute at your organisation.

 

I would like to access items such as the agreement, along with any
documents detailing the arrangement between your organisation, Hanban and
any other organisations involved, and any donations (monetary or
otherwise)  in relation to the setting up of the CI at your organisation.

 

Please see attached the agreement between Cardiff University and Hanban in
relation to the setting up of the Confucius Institute at Cardiff
University.  Article 6 details of the resources provided to Cardiff
University as part of the start up.  You will see that some information,
namely the signatures of the individuals, has been redacted as this is
exempted under section 40(2) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000, as
this is the personal data of the individual.

 

I trust this information satisfies your enquiry.  The University has a
Freedom of Information Complaints Procedure should you feel dissatisfied
with this response or the way in which your request was handled.
Complaints must be made in writing and must set out why you believe the
University has not met its obligations under the Freedom of Information
Act.  You may email your complaint to [email address] where it
will be forwarded to the Director of Strategic Planning and Governance who
will be responsible for overseeing the review.

 

If you remain dissatisfied following the outcome of your complaint, you
have the right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner for
consideration.  The Information Commissioner can be contacted at the
following address: Information Commissioner's Office, Wycliffe House,
Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF.

 

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your interest in
Cardiff University. If you require further assistance please feel free to
contact me.

 

Yours sincerely
