Chan Co-authors Book Examining Migration in China

Posted: 8/4/2020 (CSDE Research)

CSDE Affiliate Kam Wing Chan and co-author Yuan Ren recently published Children of Migrants in China (Routledge 2020). The book illustrates how unprecedented urbanization and internal migration have resulted in large-scale family separation in China. The authors reveal that more than 100 million children grow up in unstable families, a majority of whom suffer from prolonged separation from their parents owing to migratory upheaval. The analyses explains the impact of China’s internal migration on children and recommends policies to address problems from a variety of disciplinary perspectives.
