Political Science Department presents Guest Speaker, Dr. Quan Li, Texas A&M University
International student flows increased rapidly over the past two decades, generating significant economic and political ramifications. However, there is little research on the political determinants of this phenomenon. We fill this gap by investigating the impact of regime type. We argue that regime type affects student flows by shaping government restrictions and influencing the demand for higher education and high-quality universities. We hypothesize that student flows are highest in democratic dyads, lowest in democratic homeautocratic host dyads, and hard to predict between autocratic host democratic home and autocratic dyads. Our empirical analysis employs the largest sample in the literature to date, covering 152 home and 107 host countries across 19 years. The evidence broadly supports our expectations.
