Migration and Development in China: 30 Years of Experience

With over half the world’s population living in cities, rural-urban migration and urbanization seem to be fundamental to both internal and international migration and to development. In this context, the SSRC's Migration and Development project agreed to participate in a seminar series in fall 2009 that had been organized by the British Department for International Development to mark the 30th anniversary of the beginning of economic reform in China. In collaboration with the United Nations Development Programme, the SSRC hosted a workshop on the impact of internal migration on development in China: what lessons can we learn from the Chinese experience? In attendance at our meeting were researchers from a range of social science backgrounds, as well as a number of NGO representatives and government officials. (English and Chinese language transcripts, and a summary of the main points of discussion, are now available, along with links to other seminars in the series.)

人口流动与中国的发展:30年的经验为了纪念中国经济改革30周年,2009年秋,英国国际发展部组织了一系列研讨会,回顾中国的发展经验。作为这一系列活动的一部分,社会科学研究协会与联合国开发计划署合作,共同举办了关于人口流动与发展的研讨会。与会者包括具有各种社会科学背景的研究人员,国际组织代表,和政府官员。研讨会回顾了中国人口流动对发展影响的现有知识,政策的作用,以及可以从中国的经验中学到什么。此处提供了会议的中英文记录,讨论要点的总结,以及研讨会系列中的其他研讨会的链接。
