The Nobel prize has been, as is obvious, a useful tool for political influence - as has been seen when it was awarded to president Obama.
To China's politicians, the Nobel prize being used in this way may mean nothing, as Norway can't really hope to have much influence or control over a country like China.
China will be slow to change, but this prize might go a long way towards improving civil rights there.
The unfortunate thing is that no country can hope to 'force' China to respect human rights like some democratic countries do - China's just to powerful.
The changes have to come from within China.
Please feed the trolls. XD
