Recently, several cases and disputes concerning foreigners, especially foreign students, have aroused public concern. Nineteen drug addicts were captured in Xuzhou, Jiangsu Province. Sixteen of them were foreign nationals, including nine students. In addition, a video of a foreign man pushing a policeman when he was corrected for riding an electric bicycle in Fuzhou was watched extensively on the Internet, and the man was also an international student.
The reports of Shandong Universitys matching partners for foreign students have aroused particular criticism. Reported that each foreign student was arranged by Shandong University three partners, and most of the foreign students are male, most of the partners are female. The point of heterosexual partners has attracted a variety of irony. Shandong University says that the system of partner is quite common in universities that recruit foreign students in China, and they are dissatisfied with the special attacks on the school.
Domestic public opinion seems to have accumulated more and more dissatisfaction with foreigners being subjected to super-national treatment in China. Whenever foreigners show poor performance, public opinion criticizes their behavior, and this dissatisfaction often accompanies them. In addition, the public opinion circle has not understood that China should not spend the money, which has exacerbated the publics sentiment.
Objectively speaking, the attitude of Chinese society towards foreigners has been shaped by various encounters since modern times and the new reality of Sino-foreign relations in recent decades. We have a strong sense that we should treat foreigners correctly. As for what is right, our views are different. There are national interests and national mentality levels. Surface, and there are different perspectives at each level.
The understanding of nothing trivial in foreign affairs still has a certain impact on the working level of various departments in various parts of the country, and it also seeps into the common people to a considerable extent. On the other hand, there are more and more foreigners in China and their structures are becoming more and more complex. These situations invisibly promote the ordinary mind in all kinds of foreign affairs, because the occasions of dealing with foreigners are becoming more and more routine and too much to be taken into account.
It is the general trend that the treatment of foreigners in China has changed from relatively high to general or nationalization. Of course, foreigners are foreigners after all. There must be some differences between Chinese people and their exchanges with Chinese people. Im dealing with a foreigner. Most Chinese people still have this sense. The identity of foreigners still means something special, some of which are care and help, some of which are restrictions.
Generally speaking, we believe that giving foreigners some special care to help them adapt to strange society should not be regarded as worshipping foreign things and flattering foreign countries in a society with a long civilization and hospitality tradition like China. We should have such a sense that we should observe things from the angle of worshipping foreign things and flattering foreign countries, and a considerable part of it is the shadow left by the old times to our modern psychology.
Of course, all levers of social governance in China must treat foreigners equally and ensure that they do not disturb Chinas social order. The rights and welfare of some exclusive Chinese citizens can not be enjoyed by them. Once a foreigner commits a crime in China, how to deal with it should resort to local, that is, Chinese law. These are the common practices of highly internationalized societies towards foreigners, and have become the prevailing rules of the international community.
On the issue of dealing with foreigners, Chinese society should gradually get rid of the value judgment of what to do, and examine the issue from the perspective of Chinas national and social interests. For example, Chinas recruitment of foreign students is to cultivate future Chinese-educated and even pro-Chinese groups in those countries. Increasing their sense of closeness to China may increase the long-term rewards of this work. Although this is not a precise way of investment, the experience of various countries shows that it is a way of promoting national interests with a higher probability of success.
Of course, it is worth discussing and summarizing how to continuously improve this work according to Chinas national conditions and the actual situation of foreign students. Too much care and even special treatment for foreign students may not be conducive to their intimacy with Chinese society, and it is difficult to fit in with the reality of China-foreign relations.
It should be noted that the internationalization of Chinese society, including Chinese universities, is inexperienced. How to do this is a relative problem. As China becomes stronger and stronger, we need not be too entangled with it, but rather it should be a natural process.
There is nothing trivial about foreign affairs should be reversed and said: There is nothing important about foreign affairs. Because essentially, Chinas destiny depends on how well we do our own things, not on the attitude of others towards us. Now, whether it is some officials who are afraid of causing trouble or netizens who often feel that their national self-esteem has been hurt, in fact, they take foreign affairs too seriously.
