battre le rappel

How would you translate "battre le rappel" in the following sentence:
Aussi a-t-il été décidé de battre le rappel des sinophones désireux d’enseigner.

I was thinking of "Hence the authorities' decision to summon / call for those Chinese speakers who would like to teach the language." BUT I'm afraid "summon" is too authoritarian and "call for" not formal enough.
