It might be useful to at least quote the title of the article: The Soft Power Limits of Chinese Theravada Buddhism, along with its subtitle: Chinese Theravada Buddhism is in no position to serve as a tool of soft power for the state.

China views foreign Theravada monks with suspicion for political reasons. I know a Thai forest monk who went to live in Yunnan province and was arrested twice by the authorities and kicked out of the country.
