ABSTRACT
The article discusses whether Chinese students who have studied abroad can help to bring democracy in their own country. It states that these students have significant exposure to liberal ideas and could help to bring political change in China. Andrew Scott Conning, researcher at Harvard's Graduate School of Education, mentions that the extent to which they influence is exaggerated as they fail to influence Chinese citizens.
