Zheng Yongnian is (fortunately) no longer Director of the NUS East Asian Institute, he has been succeeded by Bert Hofman. EAI is still home to many PRC scholars and has a certain coloured view on China, but Singapore founded it precisely to better understand the Chinese perspective, so I think the government does not mind. But at least with Zheng gone, we no longer have to be afraid of accidental praise of suppression in Xinjiang or Hong Kong.
