This chapter considers patriotic education in higher education institutions in China and Kazakhstan, how it is organised and implemented at the universities and how it contributes to the larger nation-building objectives of each nation. At a first glance the neighboring countries such as Kazakhstan and China may seem rather mismatched, however the influences of socialism in the past or the present as well as the current relations under the One Belt One Road initiatives provide an interesting perspective for discussion of how educational institutions act as instruments for nation-building. Although the analysis suggests the scarcity of research on the influence and role of universities on patriotism, the chapter highlights various aspects contributing to the construction and development of patriotic education at universities.
