Abstract

Abstract:

This article provides an overview of China’s returned students and their impact on political change in China. The article analyzes how the returned students promote political reform and what changes they have brought to the political climate. The argument here is that quite a number of persons who have returned from studies abroad are in important positions and many of them serve as carriers of Western values. A large number of Chinese returnees endorse incremental political liberalization rather than radical democratic transformation. If China’s political and economic conditions continue to improve, more students will return home. In the long run, they will play a more significant role in transforming China.
