Handbook of Chinese Migration: Identity and Wellbeing

About the eBook

The recent unprecedented scale of Chinese migration has had far-reaching consequences. Within China, many villages have been drained of their young and most able workers, cities have been swamped by the floating population , and many rural migrants have been unable to integrate into urban society. Internationally, the Chinese have become increasingly more mobile. This Handbook provides a unique collection of new and original research on internal and international Chinese migration and its effects on the sense of belonging of migrants.

The expert contributors discuss topics including discriminatory wage penalties in China's migrant labour markets, the socio-economic wellbeing of China's migrant workers, the effect of migration on rural communities in China, and identities of overseas Chinese and their links with China. They offer a new perspective on the identity formation of Chinese migrants whilst focusing on their wellbeing and communities.

Students and researchers of contemporary Chinese demography, internal migration and international affairs will find this Handbook to be essential reading. It will also be of interest to social and political scientists and migration practitioners in the field.
