The nationality township is a particular form developed by China for extending preferential treatment to minority nationalities that live in complex geographical patterns. These townships, also known as ethnic townships, are a complement to the regional autonomous system. However, our research indicates that the Communist Party and other units in charge have failed to explain even the most basic characteristics of a nationality township to its citizens. Nationality townships have not improved the status or the self-consciousness of the relevant minority nationalities in Yunnan Province, or their effective participation in the economy. If there is a future at all for nationality townships, they need to be protected by stronger regulations.
