Chapter Summary

This chapter concentrates on the second half of the twentieth century and discusses the major types of cross-cultural migration in the context of the political and economic developments during the People's Republic of China. As systematic migration data are only available for the total migration in the period from Mao to the present, the main focus of the chapter is first of all on the overall migration trends in China. Furthermore, the chapter will provide an overview of other major categories of cross-cultural migration in China. It examines the sources of migration data and the overall trend of migration rate in the period 1954-2005. The chapter discusses the migration under the hukou regime in 1958-1978. The floating population under the hukou system reform since the 1980s and the changing patterns of inter-provincial migration in the period 1985-2005 is examined.

Keywords: cross-cultural migration; Hukou regime; Maoist period; Northeast China
