China's Migrant Workers
History and Challenges
Over the past 30 years, around 300 million men and women have moved from China's farms to its factories, industrial plants and construction sites, in one of the largest and most rapid migrations in human history. Luo Xiaoping, a daughter of farmers, graduated from the Academy of Marxism of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences. Her presentation will review this migration, some of the extraordinary challenges that have accompanied it, and efforts to address them. Luo Xiaoping is an assistant professor at Zhejiang Ocean University and a visiting scholar at Boston University this year.
