Economic reform, poverty and migration in China

Economic reform, poverty and migration in China

Economic and Political Weekly 28(26): 1369-1377

The paper is a preliminary attempt to analyse the new phenomenon of migration in post-reform China. Since the early 1980s the extent of migration has increased enormously, and China's migrant labour market increasingly resembles that of other large developing countries. Out-migration has a potentially large role to play in reducing poverty, but there are many special institutional barriers to migration in China.
